for the non-Stockholm locations that is not true. As a matter of fact,  
you will have to get your own fibers to Netnod there. As for co-lo of  
equipment, not as easy as in a neutral co-location. As for visits, why  
would you need to?

As for fibers, Stockholm has a fiber monopoloy run by the city of  
Stockholm. So you would have to buy fibers from that monopoloy in any  
case.
