Actually, you want to avoid using a provider that dumps their packets into
MAE (east or west), and chose one that has as much private peering as
possible and only uses the MAE as a last resort.
An interesting one is Internap (http://www.internap.com/) as they do not
focus on country-wide network infrastructure, but buy bandwidth from all the
major ISPs instead and run custom routing to dump your packets directly on
the receipient's Tier-1/2 provider's network
But we're getting way off topic here, this really belongs on a list like
Microsoft is to software what McDonalds is to gourmet cooking
