Interesting paper regarding Netflix migration to Amazon's cloud infrastructure:

And based on using Amazon's cloud based datacenters, users who are experiencing network issues should make sure they are using their ISPs DNS servers. Using other DNS servers can result in sub-optimal routing because the Amazon cloud may choose a datacenter not close to your location.
Are you saying they are using your DNS query to determine your geographical location? Not your public IP address?

Yes to both. But IP addr does not always reflect location accurately. Many Comcast IPs are assigned from pools. Mine has shown my location as being in PA and not NJ.
