Have you tried specifying a DNS server other than Rogers'? Two common
ones that people use are 8.8.8.8 (Google) and 4.2.2.2 (a big ISP in
the US). You may find that your DNS queries will be much lower latency
this way.

This also has the bonus of getting rid of those ad-filled "search"
pages that come up if you go to a non-existent domain.
