[VoiceOps] Optimizing VoIP orig routing to exploit Verizon VoIP TDM interconnections

I'm trying to plan a US nationwide georedundant SIP interconnect with
Verizon for origination and termination. I want to minimize delay
between parties, and heuristically I'll pretend people tend to talk
more to other people who are local.

So it seems smart to get my "western" origination traffic to my
Western SBC primarily, and my "eastern" traffic to my Eastern SBC.

Does anyone have a good method for deciding which side of the country
it makes sense to send traffic to?

For example, when I port a Minneapolis number to Verizon, is it any
better to have Verizon send it west, or east?

Or does it make no difference at all?

My current method is simply to use the Mississippi River. But I'll bet
if I had full visibility into Verizon's network and their TDM local
access tandem interconnects, the answer might be different.
