RE: any "bring your own bandwidth" IPv4 over IPv4 tunnel merchants?

I'm using Comcast's business-class service. ~$110 per month for 22mbit down, 5mbit up and a /29.

This would definitely be your best bet as opposed to trying to rig up a tunneled setup. You can also get their 12mbit down, 2mbit up service with a /29 for $79, iirc.

Not sure where you live / what service is available to you but many
"business" DSL, cable and fixed-wireless offerings are quite
reasonably priced these days.  I pay about $100/mo for 16m x 2m and a
/28 from my local cable operator - which is likely less than
residential service plus a vpn/tunnel service. It sure isn't a fiber
metro-E connection but it does let me run my various servers out of
the house. Perhaps something to look into.

$0.02
