The hosting provider I mention above offers 600 MB space and 25 GB/month

That should be plenty for most any organization.
Since I wanted root access, I got it (with Woody preinstalled) at
linode.com (they use UML). For $20/mo, you get 25Gb transfer, 64Mb
RAM, and 3Gb disk space.
I also use Linode, Linode is great, I have no complaints! They have a
forum (quite like fastmail.fm's one) where you can get help from other
users and the developer of Linode, and they use a special kernel hack to
prevent other people on the same box from monopolising the disk IO and
slowing the machine to a halt. The web interface is good.
I have a VPS at johncompanies.com, with which I'm very happy. Default
you get 4Gb disk and 40Gb xfer on a shared server. I'm running Debian
on mine which they provided initially, and I later upgraded as I saw fit.
I pay $45/month because I qualified as an open source contributor,
otherwise it's $65/month.
Their support persons are very qualified and have always been helpful
