Not commercial, but Spanish Fork City has extremely reliable cable service, 
and, if I am not mistaken, also offers colocation services.  They are 
currently 3Mbps down, 1.5 up, soon to increase, and become synchronous as 
well.  For residential service I pay $30-something a month. When I requested 
a static ip, they simply responded, "how many?"

So far, their network has survived all of the typical SF power outages I've 
been through in the last 2 years.  (I've always been able to use the network 
and watch TV during power outages in SF)

They have an aggressive plan for providing service to all of the businesses in 
town that want it, and in my experience they have always provided excellent 
customer service.
