UK Based CDN

Hi,
I was wondering if I could borrow the collective minds of you all to draw up a list to the CDN's that you'd use/do use in the UK. If they're outside the UK but have decent support then also include. The service must be cheap and not require a huge setup fee, it's really only for a small time business; it shares video & high-res pics so mass cheap storage is a must and wondered whether you guys had any ideas, also costs?

Mass storage isn't cheap in the UK compared to the states, for example, unless I go colo but as I say, it's a small setup but happens to require a fair bit of space. Would S3 be a good starting point? What is the service like? I hear mixed reviews about it.

Many thanks,
Jim

PS - I've read through the CDN topics from 'on the right' and had another scout thru t'internet, feeling will go for CDN, however I was wondering if there was a specific UK based setup. Apologies for not being clearer in my first paragraph.

There is one called StreamUK (but that's for streams).

Your best bet might well be Cachefly.

If you end up being large peering at LINX might well just do the job.

Take a look at us, EdgeCast Networks, www.edgecast.com. We have two POPs in London and several UK based clients. All of our POPs, including the two in London, support windows media, flash and silverlight streaming, live streaming and standard site acceleration. We're not the least expensive option but we are very price competitive and the least expensive of the premium global CDNs.
