Re: Poor planning on behalf of the hosting company.
Routing decisions are based on shortest path (not physical distance) and often by Geo Location databases. It's possible for you to be on the West Coast and have a shorter path to a server in New York than one in Las Vegas. Not to mention that Geo Location databases are very often inaccurate.
Even with that the vast majority of websites are not using complex hosting from multiple datacenters or CDNs.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
