[unknown] By default all ISP's use their DNS servers, this allows them to see exactly what you are browsing on the web, regardless of the domain using SSL or not.
What happened quite recently was CloudFlare and APNIC, both are huge companies decided to combine their resources.
What they come up with was CloudFlare handles traffic, security, and speed (Normally, associated with DDoS attacks and blocking DDoS attacks on websites). APNIC, on the other hand, owns the 188.8.131.52 domain and also 184.108.40.206, therefore, they could be used respectively for a Primary and Secondary Private DNS server system.

It can be done with any system or even in a router, for the entire home.
What I can guarantee is quite a big difference in speed, affecting not just browsing the internet but also downloading as well. Better speeds can be seen if you use any Internet Download Manager, you can normally get away with 6 - 8 simultaneous connections!
