I know I don't post allot here, but I wanted to share this as I know some of you, like me wanted a server closer to home.
10GB in Texas, I'm east coast and can saturate my 1GB service at home from here. Hitting 2gb on nzbs
Moved here from hetzner for better speeds in the US, they say 10TB but they don't limit it.

Dual Intel Xeon E5-2630L v2 (Dallas, TX)
12 Cores at 2.4GHz
64GB DDR3 ECC Memory
2x 960GB Enterprise SSD
LSI 9265-8i RAID w/ Cache & BBU
10TB Monthly Bandwidth on a 10Gbps Port
Promo code at checktout DUALE5FOR89 brings the price to $89/mo

Caveats, I did have them set up a KVM for me so I can break the raid1 into 2 raid 0 disks then installed using ubuntu minimal. I didn't test dong an OS reload using their control panel after breaking the mirror

I can post some screen shots if you would like, been with them just over a month now, no complaints from users or myself

Nice spec and price seems decent. If you have a chance the advanced speedtest under Tools would be useful to gauge what the connectivity is actually like, either that or my old faithful wget -qO- bench.sh | bash uses slightly different end points.

looks good, i just noticed the 10TB bandwidth on a 10gig pipe. That might be a handicap and wonder what their overages are, but good if just a direct play server.

Nice. Might have to look into that. Not far from TX myself and can assist rather than going the CND route.

"Thanks for your inquiry :)

Additional 10 TB bandwidth can be added at any time on any of our server plans for just $12.50/m per 10 TB. For bulk quantities above 100 TB, we can go as low as $9/m per 10 TB.

Spin Servers does not charge bandwidth overages at this time, but rather - we personally work with our customers well in advance before they hit an overage to discuss options (such as a bandwidth upgrade plan, or port capping to a lower Internet speed until the next billing cycle). We are very easygoing as a provider when it comes to bandwidth :)

Please let us know if you have any further questions - we look forward to working with you!

This is the response I got.
Waiting on a reply to see how they limit the port speed.

That is their canned reply, I went 3TB over last month and didn't get an email or anything from them. I tend to stay under 10TB most months.

Payments, they take paypal, bitcoin, alipay, etc.

That’s good they can say they can work with. I mean, 10TB is hard to pull unless your just starting. But they imply they could cut you off or charge at anytime. I know wholesaleinternet goes to to 100TB. Still good for a provider for the US.
