As far as I am aware you can't just decide how your data is routed, howerver you can use a proxy server located in whatever country you want it to go to. There also is a program that alows you to chain multiple proxies together, however I can't remember what it is called.

If you have two connections (say AT&T and Comcast) at your organisations level you can alter the routing table, set preference for connections Etc.

But after it leaves your org all bets are off!

Any false routing tables that you try to propagate will quickly be ignored, you'll cause route flaps etc and quickly get blacklisted.

For your own internal network you can just configure route preference in your router, (assuming you have a configurable router with more than one connection.

As root says, once your data is in the hands of your ISP (i.e. way before it actually reaches the internet backbone in your country) its routing is entirely at their discretion. Your access to the internet backbone is essentially the service they provide, and via peer-agreements they have with other ISPs/organisations (e.g. Verizon/Google) and Tier 1 network providers (e.g. Level 3) they are able to offer this.

Data at an international level is routed using AS (autonomous system) numbers and BGP (border gateway protocol) routing tables. You can find information about these from Hurricane Electric's website: he.net

My questions is why do you want to control the route?

There's a couple of reasons you might want to, say you have a fast connection but it's capped and expensive, you might want to use this for regular Internet traffic, you might want to direct traffic to sites like YouTube through a slower cheaper backup link.

Another reason might be that you want corporate traffic and Internet traffic to break out at different places etc, maybe you have a few lines...

Thing is, I see plenty of reasons to want to do this kind of thing, but getting into a reason to use this sort of thing is fairly specialist!
