So, I've taken an interest in knowing more about this sort of thing when it comes to networking. Is there a way to connect to different data center/server locations for my ISP? I know that I am receiving service in a town rather close to mine, however I'd like to be able to receive service in a different location than where I'm currently connected. Also, is there any way to bring up a list of these kinds of service centers in my area. And further, is there a way to test each service center to see how many leaps it takes to ping a certain server? (Like how many leaps it takes to connect to Google, or an online game server.)

Thanks for the help in advanced.

Depends on the service.  A wireless service can be connected to from a number of locations.  Wired connection you don't have that option.

No
