This sort of thing in general is not uncommon in my experience.  Many networks weight our outbound with local preferences.

According to most of BGP looking glasses in Asia, traffic via Cogent is least preferred even when i've added 6x prepend AS on our other mentioned providers to make route via Cogent more attractive. But nothing helps - seems main providers in Asia made routes via Cogent least preferable by lowering the local preference to it, that why prepending from our side doesn't help.
