as you have a lot of ISPs around you it should be really easy to get some
connectivity. Very easy: tell some friendly ISP to announce your prefix/AS

What do you mean by this? If some ISP want to donate bw, nice. If not also Ok.

Not necessarily. This much depends on your IXP model. Let's take DE-CIX. 
There is an association running DE-CIX, but InterXion as colo partner takes
cae for a lot of things. If DE-CIX would offer infrastructural services,
InterXion still would remain a simple colo provider.
