Why would latency be too high? Just talk to one of the carriers who do
everything over MPLS, I'm sure they're more then interested in selling 
some kind of "VPN services" (well someone in the company is at any rate, 
most sales people would be flatly stumped and are more concerned with 
trying to keep their jobs than finding you cheap longhaul anyways).

You might want to try isp-bandwidth, it's a list more suited for finding 
specific services you can buy and specific sales weenies who will try and 
sell it to you. I know I've seen the GigE long-haul transport subject come 
up a couple time there...
