we have been asking hosting companies in Australia for a dedicated box 
that we might be able to use as a 'seeder' in the region - for about 3 
years now - however, not one has actually come through with anything. 
Almost every time the issue that comes up is that bandwidth ( specially 
transit to the US/EU ) is too expensive to be able to let us run 
something like that.

Given that some of these guys are running > 500 machines with CentOS on 
there, I'd imagine they are not really the small fish. Also, this is 
pretty much what I got from a couple of guys out of Telstra as well.

If there are specific people you might be able to point me at, or even 
names of companies, I'd be happy to go down the route of contacting them.
