I may be able to help you, contact me off list with more details on the
type of tests you're going to run and services you will need.

I use Superb and highly recommend them.  I have 2 of their base package
dedicated servers @ 69.95/month each, 2000 Gb of data.  Not sure of your
requirements as far as processor, disk speed and volume, memory, and
bandwidth.  But I have nothing negative to say about their service,
rates, or hardware.
