I am looking for a reliable provider for a dedicated server. The host would be fiting following requirements:
- Based in New York / New Jersey or Boston area (East Coast)
- Has InterNAP and other carriers
- Good protection for DDoS / attacks
- Proven network and datacenter reliability
- Professional support team
He wants InterNAP because they a provider of high quality, probably one of the best in the country. As far as for the price of such dedicated server with should be expensive.

I wish to see InterNAP because I believe they have a great backbone. No, I don't want anything managed, just a team that have a support team and not a sales team doing support :-)
Internap doesn't actually have a backbone, they buy transit in each city just like any DC would and then use their own FCP device cluster on steroids to make automatic routing decisions. However I would say they are a solid provider, but doesn't offer anything special that any DC whose network is robust, diverse and designed well can't provide equal speed and reliability for your customers.
