Google latency problem

Hello there!
I have been having a little issue with the 1.1.1.1 DNS resolver.
The thing is that when resolving any Google linked website (google.com, gmail.com, youtube.com,…) the response IP I get points to a Google server really far away from me (I live in Slovakia and the IP is in Brazil) resulting in a high latency and slow loading times.
I don’t have this issue when using other DNS resolver (tried 8.8.8.8 and my ISP’s DNS) so I will switch to another DNS server until this issue persists.

Example when using 1.1.1.1 DNS (responds with server in Brazil with ~215ms latency)

C:\Users\simon>nslookup google.com
Server:  one.one.one.one
Address:  1.1.1.1

Hi,

Thanks for reporting this problem. Can you collect a few more diagnostics information as documented in Have problems with 1.1.1.1? *Read Me First* to help us debug this issues.

Thanks.

Thanks for adding the diagnostics info. We’ve identified the root cause, it is because our egress IP being used in the data center answers your DNS query is mis-labeled as in Brazil in same IP geo-location databases. We are working on getting it fixed.
