The procedure in this thread had absolutely nothing to do with Google SPDY. The DNS server you use doesn't determine if SPDY is enabled or not. It's your browser. You need Google Chrome to take advantage of SPDY and a website that uses it. Which to my knowledge are all of Googles services like GMail and Youtube.
The procedure in this thread is to change from your ISP's DNS servers to OpenDNS or Google Public DNS servers which also speed up pageloading times depending on how bad your current DNS server is. A DNS Lookup, sometimes multiple, are required to be made before the webpage actually starts loading and this is where the DNS providers listed in this thread are faster.
Google SPDY is just an alternative to HTTP which uses encryption and compression to make reading headers much faster. This only applies to like I said above, SPDY websites. DNS affects every single website and that's where users are seeing a speed increase.
