    PCCWGlobal/BTN, NTT

    PCCW has much better pricing, and they are intertwined with Reach

    Thanks.

    Do you know of any dedicated server sellers who are on their bandwidth that can match he.net pricing ?

    Nobody can match HE's pricing for Asia optimized BW, never.
    Asia has very high priced traffic and many telecom monopolys that sell the mbit for 30-500$ - a mix of them is very expensive.

    For a "good" Asian mix (i.e. PCCW, NTT, China Netcom and some others like Hanaro) you look at 10-20$ / Mbit and not less.

    Well, China Telecom isn't cheap, though it is pretty important for China users.
    For a good mix, I would say Pacnet, Singtel, Reach (not PCCW), NTT, Telekom Malaysia (2-3 in the list will be good).

    For HE.net in Asia, it is pretty weak. Only have a few direct Asia routes. Most Asia traffic still need to send to US and then come back.

    The best would be Asianetcom which has some of the most comprehensive networks in South East Asia

    Depends on Rep, but usualy 20-100$.

    Well, only Netcom will not get you far in China - you also need Telecom, though they are more realistic on their prices.

    For a good mix, I would say Pacnet, Singtel, Reach (not PCCW), NTT, Telekom Malaysia (2-3 in the list will be good).
    Pacnet is also good for Oceania, Singtel is rather useless unless you target Singapore, Telekom Malaysia is important for malaysian users since their external BW sucks hard.

    We run NTT and PCCW in mix that gives us a pretty good network performance.

    Asianet is not in the scene anymore, it's now Pacnet (the merger of Asianet and Pacific Internet).

    I have to agree, you can't find a provider in Asia that can match the pricing of HE.
    You might want to contact the following provider and get a quote from them - Pacnet, PCCW, NTT, Singtel, TATA

    In recent months KDDI has become very aggressive with pricing for 100MB and full GigE circuits. Being a telehouse customer also helps to some degree with pricing.

    I believe KDDI has a pretty robust backbone with connectivity into Asia and surrounding local markets.
