Hey, i'm looking to get a dedicated server for hosting video game servers. I'm looking for something in North America with extremely low latency. I need the ability to get Windows server licenses as well. Preferably not too expensive.

Nope, not particulary. Just somewhere that gets a decent or low latency all around the US and Canada.

My experience with the Peer1/ServerBeach network has had low latency.
All the best,

I had softlayer servers in their Dallas/Washington DC/Seattle DC's.
By far their best, is the Dallas DC.
Why?
It has the most connectivity
Is in the central US, meaning good pings for everyone in the US and Canada.
Regards,

What ping did you expect? I'd play any game @ 90ms ping. Even though I get 9ms pings to them
But I'm only a few miles from their DC.....

Oh i expected about that. That's good from going to the US from Canada.
I get about ~50-60 from my servers at Carat Networks, and im on the other side of the country and using a different ISP.
Heres a test IP from Carat: 24.102.56.128
