The "fairest" way to do it is probably to pick hosts at major
exchange points, like MAE-East, MAE-West, LINX, AMSIX, DIGIX, INEX
(well, why not!) Spint NAP, and CIX.
You should pick hosts on different backbones at the exchanges, since
exchanges can often introduce delays of their own and you want to
average this out. This strategy will reward ISPs with good peering
and transit relationships, which is what connectivity is all about.
