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.
