    You should check the advertising forums then make a test by asking the ip of the provider you are interested in.

    This really comes down to what you are wanting to do. If it is Web Hosting, then Yes, you could look for an AU based host, but it will cost more than US based hosts.

    You might be happy with West-Coast US hosts - as they are generally acceptable for a lot of people and usually at a price that is more acceptable.

    Your best bet would be looking for the looking-glass tool for some of the major ISPs in each country.

    From my own experience in Australia, you'll find that some budget ISPs don't have much direct routing through Asia, so hosting in Singapore may not be the best option, since it would route to the West Coast of America, then into Asia, making it longer than if you just hosted direct on the West Coast.
