The Internet is not flat

Since I was interrested recently in working at Google (if I could be so lucky) I had a look at the map of sites, and you can too - interresting how Google have offices predominately in the Northern hemisphere, where most of the content, traffic and customer base are all together.
Check the map out for yourself on their Jobs page .
I have just wasted 1 hour searching for an internet traffic density map, but all I could find is a resonably low contrast intantaneous map, which is clearly time sensitive - but here it is.

You can study it more closely here - the point is the internet is happening in the Northern hemisphere - not fair at all. But it all points in the same direction, much like having a TV arial on your roof points to you having a set?
