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.
