Post-Tattoine, most planets are completely deserted. 8-20 people on most planets. Like right now, I'm on Corellia, and there are 17 people.
Corellia has a very narrow level range and a lot of people skip it because by 48-49 you can do BH/Section X dailies for better xp gain.

Individual planet population is a bad indication of sever population.

I'd suggest the Harbinger as well. I like being on a well populated server and I am quite happy here. And having APAC players around is a nice plus.

And I'm gonna agree with one of the previous posters that the population status labels don't coincide with specific numbers that are the same across all servers. Given what I have observed in my admittedly limited play time on Begeren Colony, I would be very surprised if it had more players than the Harbinger.

What you feel and what is happening are two different things.

BC has constant flashpoints, PvP, Ops, GSF and people leveling on planets. Plus it is only very late at night (around 1-2 a.m. during weekdays and 4 a.m. on the weekends) that BC falls down to one instance of Fleet.

The "force" has nothing on solid number from official server status and from a website that takes population samples.

I played on four different servers and settled on BC because of their higher population and often lower more stable GTN prices.

That site you are referring to, shows which servers reach "Heavy" status the most often.
However, this does NOT reflect actual population numbers. All you have to do is log into both servers and compare the population. You will find Harbinger will have a HIGHER population than BC even though BC has "Heavy" status and Harbinger is only at "Standard". I have been tricked into playing BC once it reaches "Heavy" status, only to log out and log into Harbinger to find a higher population on Harbinger even though Harbinger is still at "standard' status.

Another good indication of population is GTN listings.
Compare the two, and you will find Harbinger has more listings with more competitive prices.
