Yes, 100%, I would pick MAE-East. MAE-East is the closest you are going to
get to the world, and there is more data going over it then any other
NAP. You may also want to look at putting a server up at a few NAPs, this
is what we are doing now for one of our users. This will be a HUGE www
audio provider, and they need fast access with as little delay as
possible. We will be providing them colo at MAE-East, MAE-West, and
Chicago NAP. The people they are accessing the site will then hit a image
map and get served out of the closest server.
