How to solve slow internet problem in Bali

At home (Bali) I have a Telkom landline internet. I pay for 2 Mb/sec. Internet speed measured with Ookla app usually shows I have 2.5 Mb/sec. But loading of almost all pages is excruciatingly slow. From searching on the internet I think the reason is because Telkom highjacks DNS, so all DNS requests have to go through their servers and they simply cannot cope.

So, what would be a good alternative? As far as I know there is no fiber where I live. Landline or wireless solutions are possible.

Thanks for you helpful info.

We're using Indyhome 20 MBPS, but no idea what is available in Bali. 2 or 2.5 MBPS seems pretty slow anyway.

Indihome is fiber I think. THere is no fiber in my street as far as I know. Many months ago I registred with Indihome for fiber. They wanted to know my mobile number such that the engineer could call me when they came to install. I never got a call.
