Adam, perhaps this is an opportunity to create and market 
such a database.

We have seen data from SixXS and HE's BGP Toolkit. Renesys 
(or are they now called Dyn) is a good resource but is not 
free. But maybe these sources do not currently satisfy you, 
and others.

The data on HE's BGP Toolkit will tell you which ISP's are 
registered with AFRINIC, and by that extension, which ISP's 
are available in which countries. There is some margin of 
error as registered country can differ from operating 
country, but it's a good place to start. If you can use that 
data to create a database, it will be easy to fill in the 
gaps once you have something going.

I'm happy to support you personally and professionally in 
this. Just let me know how.
