I work at a Web/Dedicated Server hosting company in Hong Kong.
A few companies in the USA have sent us servers for colocation in Hong
Kong for a whole number of reasons (true redunancy/backup, fast
connections to Asia, etc.), but I suppose that avoiding PSI's possible
network meltdown would be as good as any. We connect to a number of
backbone providers in Asia, and PSI is not on our list.
Anyway, if you're interested, let me know and I'm sure we can arrange
