Ummm... how about virtually ANY web host that is not a reseller?

You are looking for "Colocation", and Google will happily be your friend.

I dont beleive this is what he was after. To run a full time server at say digiweb (first google result) will be $280 a month.
I beleive he wants just server space with a NZ based company similar to gameservers.com, where you can hire a dedicated "game server" for around $15us per month, which allows you and your buddies to play on dedicated equipment at anytime without one of them trying to host it.. Of course these servers are probably hosting 20+ games at once but you dont notice it.

To answer your question SnipA, no i dont but im keen to find myself someone that will do this too when Natural Selection 2 comes out

These guys used to do what you want but they closed down in July
http://www.gamers.net.nz/

There's GamerHub (formerly IconzArena), who might do what you want
http://gamerhub.co.nz/

You should also look at Australian based hosting (GotGames, DedicatedServers), the ping should still be good enough.

Another option is talking to local ISP's and seeing if there is any interest, TelstraClear host a few gaming servers, so do Xnet.
