Are you in one of these countries?
I'm developing a special-interest website for a group of users in these countries:
I'm wondering where to locate it to get best connectivity for all. Currently it's hosted in the NE US.
If you live in one of these countries and have a few minutes to spare to do a ping and traceroute and browse a few pages, drop me a PM here.

Oh, I've got eastern Canada covered so no problem there
