I cant answer that, only you can. If that hosting provider has many peers 
but your customers are not behind them its of no use.

But generally a hosting provider with many local peers, either public or 
private -might have- ok connections ;)

For example if they private peer with 10 mbps and the other one has 10 
gbps public peering...

There isnt a real answer to your question. Its based on your own buisiness 
needs and decisions on those.
