    Never found a free one that works as well at blocking ads and trackers.

            1. Depends on the region it’s operated in.
            2. I pulled a number out of my behind :D
            3. [Insert 3rd reason here]

              1. I doubt you could get that high, honestly. Even at a high energy cost. They sip power.
              2. Fair enough ;D
              3. Most compelling reason of all, you’ve changed my mind. ;P

          I deployed it for a while on my home server, but in the end, the uptime wasn’t really satisfactory and I didn’t want to lose my ad blocker due to fibre damages due to poor weather or similar issues, so I decided to go for NextDNS.

            How can the uptime be not satisfactory.
            If it doesnt work, you either set it up incorrecrly or your server/home infrastructure has issues.

            If the internet goes out due to bad weather, I think I you have other problems than no ad block, no?

              Not regular bad weather, but torrential weather. ISPs do have downtime once in a while as well.

              I can only do 3 9s of uptime for now, and it makes enough sense for me to pay for the convenience.
