What you’re describing is loadbalancing. Which would look at load and number of connections and whatnot before deciding where to send requests.

I’m referring to latency based routing, where my expectation is that my requests would be served from the datacenter closest to me to ensure the lowest latency.

Also Maxmind acknowledge the issue here, and have region specific urls that they recommend you use if you experience the issue.
