It sounds like you've considered and rejected co-location as an option?
I've been happy with tummy.com's shared solo offering, although I'm only
serving a few gigs of files. Their pricing goes by bandwidth and by storage
space, but you get what appears to be root on a KRUD installation so you
can run whatever services you like. The advantage to something like this
is, they take care of all the connectivity issues, UPS, etc.
Just my $0.02.
