This isn't even close to being realistic. First of all, I don't think cPanel partners are allowed to sell licenses to colo customers at anything less than the External price, which is $45/month or so. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) Even if I am wrong on that, a cPanel partner NOC needs 175 cPanel licenses to make their
price $25/month/license, and that's going to be hard to find with any colocation provider.
$50/Mbit, as others have said, is ridiculously low for quality bandwidth on a couple of servers. Expect to commit to at least 100Mbit to be able to obtain that price.
Whether you're getting IPs directly from ARIN or from a provider, IPs cost colocation providers money as well. Although most providers will allow a small number (generally 10 or less) of IPs for free, don't expect to be able to source entire class C's without paying for them.
Replacing faulty hardware for free -- again, this takes time and money on the part of the colocation provider. Someone must diagnose the issue, pay for the hardware (and since you've paid for the server, why would we do this for free?), and spend time repairing the system and making sure it comes back online afterwards. If you want this, buy a server from Dell or IBM with a service contract -- but you'll pay extra for the privilege.
Free shipping? I can see providers willing to do this, but not at the margins you've presented.
The picture you've painted simply isn't realistic. Raise your prices on bandwidth. Also, I would recommend buying your own cPanel licenses -- if you buy several yearly licenses at a time, for instance, cPanel will give you discounts. We've switched to DirectAdmin at this point to avoid the very problem you're seeing with cPanel, and we have just as many happy customers on DA as we do on cPanel.
