@Andrew I'm working on checking all the routes that are listed in the OP. Are there any providers available in the Ashburn, VA area? I think that's a major east coast hub just one hop outside of New Jersey. I live just east of Pittsburgh, PA and my route to the current server goes west to Pittsburgh, south to Ashburn, then to NJ, then to the server. It's something like 9 hops, but my ping to the server is ~25 right now.
