They are an AMS-IX member and have an open peering policy. This would
be worthless for them if they could not attract traffic there.
Perhaps connectivity would be better if other networks didn't filter.
Or they could set no-export but then they'd be bitten by networks that
reset all communities inbound. In the end you're always dependent on
other people's networks to deliver the bits to your border routers.
It depends on what you call "much better."
