In this case they being Google and their being Google's IP space (but you
can replace Google w/ any provider using caching servers).

When I was using Comcast 6to4 gateway, the latency wasn't too bad (I'm a
Comcast customer).  If the anycast is being broadcast from a regional
datacenter and your ISP has good connectivity, the latency shouldn't be bad
(in the QIX case above, the latency shouldn't be any worse than QIX's IPs
unless someone started advertising the same anycast subnet w/ a lower cost).
