Recommendations for ISPs around the world

Dear colleagues,

I'm at a loss here. My current project is to find "good" transit providers
in those regions: South America, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asian-Pacific.

Requirements are simple:

  - good regional connectivity/peerings
  - fair reach to "mainland" Europe (London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt)
  - locations close to exchanges (so we can join there, too)

I'm thinking of using two transit ISPs per location (full BGP from our side,
of course).

I have considered MCI, BT Infonet, Verio, Reach, Sprint, for AP and/or Latin
America, but they of course all tell you that they are greatly interconnected.

For eastern europe I'm really at a loss, and Africa seems to lack regional
connectivity. All I can found is local stuff.

So, if anyone can give me a hand here, that would be greatly appreciated.
