Depending on the details of what you're after, Packet Host and/or Vultr might 
suffice.  They do BGP, IPv4 & IPv6 even. They have various flavors of 
servers, some of which might meet your definition of "dedicated".  I do a 
little BGP-based anycast DNS with both of them, with pretty decent results.
