Why searching from Europe? If you want speed don't worry just find a good hosting service from USA. It is really good. I am using FreeStyleHosting, their center is in Nederland and their servers are in USA. I am really happy with them.
I Don`t know how good HostPlus are as resellers, (pretty good I suspect) but I can certainly say that I have been extremely happy with the level of service, assistance and general knowledge and courteousness of them as a hosting company.
