That's good news indeed. I am using Comodo DNS on my router instead of the ISP's DNS. I've been using the DNS addresses since they were first announced. :)

Well... it works fine, I'm using it.

There were some tests here: http://forums.comodo.com/empty-t62208.0.html

And I think LanGuy99 did some ping tests, and SecureDNS did great.

Ping test is only relevant when comparing *.*.*. *.*.*. 22 and 25, but they are in the same subnet. I can not understand why Comodo has made the division into non-english countries. For me traceroute identical.

When comparing multiple DNS services important criterion is not ping, important time for the server processes the request and gives an answer. Ping test is just a test network - should do when choosing the DNS provider has already been made and he has several sets of IP addresses.

For a user from Greece would it be a good idea to use the SecureDNS service or it will slow down my web surfing experience?

Since DNS servers only come into play for the initial URL lookup, streaming and downloading speeds won't be affected by your choice of DNS servers.
