You will have to pay for extra international bandwidth.
Where should I locate our servers in this case?
NTT! Formerly known as HKNET.
Anyone had any experience with dyxnet.com co-location?
There network is good....
The only thing I don't like is that you pay HK$50/mbit for local bandwidth....

Am I the only one who finds the charge by mbps type scheme antiquated? Are their any colos that offer you deals on the amount of data transfered - much like the dedicated hosting facilities offer?
Oh I agree with you, but it matches the capabilities of the customer.
The reality is people won't get this, like many things, they are retarded and have to be given a retarted scheme.... the fears of paying by data transferred for the average joe is scared of how much they use as even measuring how much data you have transferred is beyond even most IT people.... and they are scared being hit with a big bill. So one fixed fee with mbit/s rate is easy to budget. If there is congestion..... more stupidity (accountant style) budgeting kicks an upgrade in the future can take place. Or they can wait until they turn a profit, hahahahahah. I've seen that so many times, lets do it half assed, with out any capacity planing, then build something that is insuficcient, then they don't spend more money until they make a profit.... I am sure Boris can mention of a case like that....
Shri, I am documenting and going release my DNS Racing system which is a method of doing a CDN, multi ISP, with optimal path funneling of users... using cheap ass ISP circuits, no load balancers and no BGP/AS numbers.... let me know if I can post a link to my blog. YEs and it is free also.

I thought it was not easy. The bill is based on 95%tile or do they physically cap your connection at the bandwidth you order/
