My client has a website with a lot of video and is worried about the speed at which his audience in Japan will be able to stream them. Some of the videos are large, and our domestic shared host has apparently stomped on our bandwidth recently, because they are now downloading slowly here. We are moving to a dedicated server because of this, but think it also might be necessary to have the website hosted in Japan, or possibly Hong Kong, to give the viewers a decent download speed. Any experience with this issue, or thoughts? Are there any services that will test download speed for the Japanese audience at a reasonable price?
