  The pertinent questions are, I think (a) what do you mean by "the
  region" and (b) what constitutes good quality connectivity for your
  application?

  Asia Pacific is a big place. If you really mean "the whole of Asia
  Pacific", the answer is quite possibly still "Palo Alto".

"The region" does indeed mean the whole of asia pacific. My objective
is to locate the service where query-response latency will be the
lowest for as many clients in the region as possible.

I realize that AP is a tough area to cover; I spent three years doing
ISP work in Tokyo. Like I said in my reply to Suresh, I'd love to be
able to drop more than one POP in the region. F's locations in New
Zealand, Hong Kong, and Seoul sound pretty ideal. Unfortunately, I
only have room for one POP on the budget.
