If the number of IPs you require is small, then you can
probably solve the problem with IPv4 anycasting. Several
people have built out distributed anycast networks but 
the problem is that they think IPv4 anycast is a "DNS thing".
Therefore they don't sell anycast hosting services to
people like you who need it.

Of course, if you made them more aware of market
demand, this could change.
