They are also very central in the USA and ping times are great. Another long time vBulletin forum owner that could be considered a "big board" is also going there after much research.

I was also looking at www.DedicatedNow.com (colo) because of their great rates on cPanel and a good network, however I would rather pay a bit more for colo'ing at a center that comes with rave reviews (and is closer to me - driving up this week to check out the DC) than worry about anything.

Colo fee's for 1 server @ 1000 gigs of bandwidth per month is $169.00 for a 1u/2u server or mini-tower. A couple of us are touching on possibly going in on either 1/2 or full rack space and unentered premium bandwidth. If you are running multiple servers, that can bring the price down considerably.
