Define "better", without quotes.
Was there anything you were not happy with your current provider?

If you cannot define "better" yourself, don't spend time on looking for it!

Are you interested in peering with Zimbabwe or USA? Or both? And some
other countries?

May there isn't?

Yeah, sure. Let's do it! Once? Twice? On Sunday? Night/day? Test to where?

I am using Asahi-net since around 2001 on more accounts that I
remember (have 2 FTTH lines,  1 LTE, 2+ WiMax) and I have not seen
anything better, if you walk down the run-a-server at home path. If
you are planning to just leech torrents, or stream Skype - I don't
know, there is a slight chance others may be better.
