Shapefiles, KMZs, etc.

I'll make sure that Telecom Ramblings gets all public sources I find. They would also have links to maps that aren't in a spatial format ie: PDFs, interactive web sites, etc. I'm looking for spatially enabled maps so I can see them all on the same screen, turn layers on and off, measure builds, and other GIS type work.

If you have KMZ files you have compiled from public sources, can you make them available? 

This would be very useful to have for project I work on from time to time.

I am looking for shapefiles, KMZs, etc. for networks primarily in the Midwest, but really throughout the area that is the scope of this list. I am a small ISP that just happens to know more than your average ISP about where people are and how to use GIS tools. I use them to help other ISPs find transport and they may come in handy for some start-up IX work I'm involved with. They would not go public and I would be willing to sign NDAs to get them. I have gotten several form public sources, but I may not have gotten all of the public ones and I have some (but still only a few) private ones. 

Thank you.
