Whilst most of my traffic will be US based, my adminstration will be from Australia.
This would normally not be that much of an issue. However i will be uploading 1 - 4 GB files (single files) to the server. Therefore i need to be sure that the server network has a strong connection to Australia.
Does anyone have any idea of what dedicated host provider is with a network with such connectivity?
Depends what your price range is in Aus. For a 100Mbit pipe you're looking at a few K per month. Where is the administration located? If it's in Queensland you'd be best to make your DSL is a PipeNetworks connected provider and then couple that with a PipeIX connected dedicated server crew.
Such examples of these are Aussiehosts.com, HostingShop.net.au and OzColocation.com.
I'd say you'd be fine with a base level server since finding an upload pipe larger than 1-2Mbit.
If you want further assistance drop me a PM and I'll give you a few pointers to the best methods to transfer large (1GB+) files easily.
What is more important for you? The speed of your clients? or your administration?
If your clients, go to a provider in the US, where your most of the clients/traffic are. And if more important is your admin function, go to a dedi provider in Australia.
