    55= Good experiences =
     7 * [ Team Cinipac] "allow on all server locations services like TOR/VPN/I2P because we are supporting projects who safe the privacy like wikileaks, TOR etc. We stand behind our customer and abuse will be forwarded to you to take action. If you have problems, need help etc. just only contact our Abuse/Law Department they will help you in this case. We do not provide any kind of information to third parties. Our company locate in Panama and we ignore court orders from other countries, because we think privacy is an human right." - pretty expensive though
    78 * [ Santrex] has servers in UK, France, USA, Germany and Canada, and they explicitly allow Tor exits at all locations - but recommend their DDOS protected US location. Abuse will be forwarded, and if dealt with within 24-48hrs, the account won't get suspended. They also allow a wide range of payment processors besides PayPal, eg. Liberty Reserve, WebMoney and CashU.
    1314 * [ Speakeasy] allows users to run arbitrary servers without port or traffic volume restrictions.  Static IP addresses are offered without question or complaint.
    1415 * [ Slicehost/Rackspace] (a hosting provider, not an ISP) allows running Tor on their servers, but if anybody downloads copyrighted material illegally through Tor, that's a ToS violation. I had an issue with a DMCA (copyright violation) notice triggered by Tor activity exiting through my server, and I had to agree to block the port on which the material was downloaded for them to let me continue running the exit relay. Setting an ExitPolicy that only allows certain ports is probably smart if you don't want to get into trouble. Otherwise, the service is great; each server gets guaranteed 10 Mbps, and the network has never been down in the 6 months I've been a customer. Plans start at US $20/month, reasonably cheap as these things go. Update: 3 March 2010: Approach with caution. I'd love to move my exit node to Slicehost, but after trading several e-mails with a Greg in technical support, I could not get a straight answer about whether Tor complies with the company's AUP. Greg's response when pushed: "Again, we do not recommend this service to be run on our platform. If you have any other questions, please let us know." -- EricB
     16 * [ FDCservers] allows Tor, and customers to react to abuse within 24 hours before taking further steps.
     17 * [ Sh3lls] says their dedicated servers can be used for anything legal, as long as the customer handles abuse they're fine.
