Peering

Don't forget peering. Google eliminates a lot of their transport costs by peering directly with large network providers. Not only is that good for Google, it is good for network providers because their transport costs are reduced.

they also have Datacenters around the world which means they have less distance to cover to each user. which im sure effects cost and performance for everyone involved

Google will peer (paid or SFI) with just about anyone.

My ISP (Cablevision/OOL) hops directly out of their network right onto google's network...5 hops out of mine and then another 10 hops to google.com.
