It seems they have low-latency links to everyone and everywhere in .eu Keep in mind though that both Telia and Tiscali refuse to peer with smaller providers on the European exchanges. It's probably a good idea to check if the provider you want to use has an open peering policy as well as a large network if you really want the best performance. For example, http://www.ams-ix.net/connected/index.html lists all members of the Amsterdam Internet Exchange, and their peering policy. Mike.
