This is Good for both Google & user. Google can easily get more information on what site you are navigating and what all you are doing.
For users, they get more speed to get more done at lesser time.
This would definitely force every other ISPs to increase the bandwidth at afforadable price, like the way google did for free e-mail storage space.

Yeah, now Google can track everyone even more easily, and store even more data. Not just browsing, but everything you do online!

Maybe then google ads will become intelligent enough that they will realize that I don't want to "LOSE 100 POUNDS IN 2 WEEKS!" or "RIPPED ABs IN 1 WEEK!!!"...
