Slow Facebook? Here’s how to fix it.




So if you’re one of those who were affected by the slow internet due to the severed undersea cable last week, then you’re out of luck since it will take about 4 to 6 weeks for the problem to be fixed.

Others are also experiencing slow loading of Facebook and this could be due to the re-routing of your ISP to Facebook content servers that are much farther from the Philippines. Facebook has CDNs (Content Delivery Network) that shortens the path from your device to their servers. However, due to the problem with several undersea cables, these might be affected, causing Facebook to load very slow.

One of the ways to fix this is by using a different DNS than the one your ISP has provided you. This can be found in the settings of your WiFi router at home. You can also do this on your web browser if you don’t have access to the WiFi router.

If you’re on a smartphone and connected to 3G/4G, you can do this by downloading the DNS Changer app in Google Play Store and use that to input the IP addresses below.

Google DNS
DNS 1: 8.8.8.8
DNS 2: 8.8.4.4

Google also has IPv6 public DNS servers: 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844.

OpenDNS

DNS 1: 208.67.222.222
DNS 2: 208.67.220.220

Norton DNS

DNS 1: 198.153.192.50
DNS 2: 198.153.194.50

Smart Bro has their own DNS as well:

121.1.3.81
202.57.96.3

Here’s for Sky Cable:
202.78.64.83/202.78.64.84

We’ll update this list with more DNS servers as we get them. We suggest going with Google DNS first before trying other IP addresses.
