The AMS-IX is a service that is present at multiple colocation
providers. One or two of these are, let's say, not state of the
art anymore. But that's a colo issue and doesn't have anything to
do with the AMS-IX network. This is different from the US, where an
internet exchange is usually tied in with one colocation provider,
so I can see where the confusion comes from.
