[oclug] Co-location / hosting environments

I'm looking for a good co-lo / hosting place.
It can be either physical co-lo, or a virtual machine, but I'd need full root access on the box in question. Tech support quality is of a minimal concern, but price and available bandwidth will be my top two concerns, in that order. The machine will start out as a DNS server, but may eventuall spawn into a Tor/Freenet/mixminion/mixmaster node as well (and possibly just straight mail), depending on bandwidth pricing, and whether the hosting environment is crypto-friendly.
If all goes to plan, I'd be looking to eventually sustain at least ~4Mbps, with bursts up to 10Mbps, which is a big pain point for most hosting providers: sustaining that kind of traffic means I'll be doing >2Tb/month (>316GB/mo).
Any Linux/BSD-friendly places out there with which people have had good experiences, that offer decent rates, and have reasonable co-lo agreements?
