Recommend a server hosting company that's reliable and responsive. I want to be able to upgrade my plan in a hurry. Also, a cheap mirroring service.

I plan on launching an online game (later) in the new year, and need a dedicated server host with plenty of bandwidth. Ideally I want to keep costs low, as this is an indie project. But if it gets very popular very quickly ("wanged" or "slashdotted" or "mefi'd"), I want the ability to upgrade my service and preferably hardware ASAP. The only real way to know how good a server hosting company is, is to ask people who've used them before. So, any recommendations?
Also, the client software should be fairly stable between patch/upgrades, and will be a significant chunk of my bandwidth. Can anyone recommend a good mirroring service that is a) cheap, b) reliable, and c) acts just like a regular download does? (That is, I click on the download link and the mirroring service chooses which mirror to rely upon, no interstitial ads or choice screens for the user to select.)
