Where does Google Autosuggest get it's data?  It's so fast that it seems like the data must be on my local machine, rather than looking to the Internet.

The search engine sends a ~500byte packet after each letter you type (as seen in the attached image). With the data going back and forward being so small; the only real latency is your ping to google.com

WinKey + R
type CMD
hit enter
type ping google.com
hit enter

the ms value you receive is basically the delay from google to your pc.
