VPS Latency From Mumbai

I just did some very rough & quick testing of latency using VPS providers from Bombay.  Latency I checked with ping average 15 responses.  Throughput I downloaded a 100mb file and took average download speed rounded down in 25 mb increments (because it felt very volatile). Here are the quick results:  
Provider Region Latency Throughput
Tokyo 147ms 200 kB/s
London 155ms 200 kB/s
Singapore 76ms 300 kB/s
Tokyo 141ms 200 kB/s
EU-Ireland 174ms 175 kB/s
  No big surprises, but I couldn’t find another source anywhere else.  Obviously not a rigorous test methodology, but at least it gives some general feedback.
