Well you get what you pay for. There are reasons why FDC and Managed have less than average service, it's due to the fact that you are paying them less than $100 a month. EV1 can afford those prices because they are huge, and their support infrastructure is extremely streamlined.
Even with EV1 you get what you pay for, support is limited, as more often than not they will simply have your box restored if problems occur.
So, can I recommend anyone who is a high bandwidth/ low ping provider for a reasonable price? Sure, I define reasonable at around $80 per Mbit........but, with you definition of reasonable??? Sorry, can't go there.
