I've just got to the same point :)

The ADSL line here is becoming overloaded so I need a bit more bandwidth. SDSL 
is not available, but at £200 per month a machine somewhere else is looking 
attractive. ( The other quote for a line was £36k per year ... )

Personally I need something that will support a current Apache/PHP set-up 
along with Firebird. I'd prefer an AMD64 based Linux machine, but that seems 
as elusive as shared hosting of a REAL database like Firebird ;)

Current short list is Fasthosts down at Gloucester. I know WHERE it is does 
not matter, but I've 30Gb of data to push in initially, so dropping DVD's down 
seems a good idea.

Any body got a better option?
