Just wondering...I'm not having problems or anything, but take a look:

If i'm right, my connection goes to new york THEN london ? Isn't that a bit stupid or level3 'big hub' is @ NY or something ?
Why it works like that ?

The people to ask are your ISP support staff but since you're in Brazil I'm not entirely surprised.

The alternative would be a direct cable link from Brazil to London. That's a long way to run a cable and I don't know if the traffic would justify it.

By contrast there's already a helluva lot of capacity linking the US and the UK and I wouldn't be surprised if the main link was New York<->London. Heck:New York<->London is probably the primary US/EU link in which case any ISP in North or South America would be crazy not to use it.

Correct. There are a absolute ****-ton hard-line links between the USA and England (which is where all EU traffic from your area comes into the EU). However, Brazil has very few, so if the networks load balancing can't fit you on that route, they'll route you through the nearest available, which happens to be New York. In all probability, it's only adding 50 or so milliseconds onto your trip. Bare in mind that your connection would have to travel just as far to get to the London datacenter if Level 3 were using the Brazil hard-line.
