Let me recommend the IXmaps project. It is documenting the very question you are asking :)
IXmaps is an interactive tool that enables internet users and researchers to study the route(s) that data packets take across North America, with 'interesting' sites highlighted along the way. It is currently under development. It has been supported by a research grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada's Image, Text, Sound and Technology program.
IXmaps is affiliated with the New Transparency Project and the Information Policy Research Program at theFaculty of Information, University of Toronto.
