Given that there's not many AU mirrors, would you still want a Tier 1
for australia?

If so, I can vouch for all four of the above, I would trust them all.
iinet is the third largest ISP here, internode is the 4th.

iinet, pacific and aarnet are all on the debian ftp.au.debian.org
round robin, so those three are trusted by debian.

Internode is a phenomenal ISP. Real humans answer the phones, they
provide a brilliant service and have good value plans. They state that
they will support anything that has a TCP/IP stack and they mean it.

iinet is similarly awesome. They're presently being sued for allowing
bittorrent traffic of copyrighted material. They're sticking up for
our consumer rights rather than caving and settling with the media

So that's anything but conclusive. Maybe send an email to all 4 at
once and see if any volunteer. Or just leave as-is as there's not many
AU mirrors anyway.
