(I mean, seriously, you could put your server in my rack for $50/month, but I can only guarantee you about 10Mbps symmetric right now.)

For dedicated server hosting in Canada, I have used iWeb. They aren’t the speediest network wise, but I have had very good service and reliability for the last 7 years (one HD failure, which they fixed immediately).

If you check their warehouse clearance section, you can get a pretty good deal. I have a Dual-Core machine with 8GB of Ram and 2x500GB HD’s for $59/month.
