An example from DTAG.DE germany.
I share my aDSL with some 32K end users.
95% of my queries are not in the cache.
An answer from my ISPs first nameserver almost never returns.
An answer from my ISPs second nameserver takes either 80msec (cache) or 3.3 secs.
I guess now you understand why my neighbors DSL16K is slower than my DSL 1K :)
My own resolver (bind 9.4) returns after 3msec (cache) or some 400msec.
95% of my queries are in the cache now.
Of course even cheap routers today have a built in cache. So reality looks bright.
