Google’s Jeff Kaufman writes in the Webmaster Central blog:

With Optimize for Bandwidth, the PageSpeed team is bringing this same technology to webmasters so that everyone can benefit: users of other browsers, secure sites, desktop users, and site owners who want to bring down their outbound traffic bills. Just install the PageSpeed module on your Apache or Nginx server [1], turn onOptimize for Bandwidth in your configuration, and PageSpeed will do the rest.

If you later decide you’re interested in PageSpeed’s more advanced optimizations, from cache extension andinlining to the more aggressive image lazyloading and defer JavaScript, it’s just a matter of enabling them in your PageSpeed configuration.
