Hi Gordon, friends, public info:

mh at home:~$ whois -h whois.ripe.net -i origin AS3320 |grep route6
route6:         2001:67c:14c4::/48
route6:         2003::/19
route6:         2003::/20
route6:         2a00:8a00:6000::/35
route6:         2a01:598::/29
mh at home:~$

... I worked from time to time with Ruediger to kick these into the 
peering with AS6453,
Teleglobe/Tata, with some success, before my late departure.

Sanity-check of my statement:

I agree, that peering is generally a good thing (engineer I am since
some time now),
business model of yesterday in need of thoughtful remake I hear/think
since quite a
while now. Let's not forget about the extra-financial bits.;-)
