We do have tunnel servers in Europe, however our BGP tunnel servers are
separate we are in the process of deploying them to Europe.  If you don't
need BGP, and just need to do some basic testing then one of our regular
European tunnel servers will fix your latency concerns.

For BGP, we strongly encourage you (or your upstream) to run native with
us at one of any of the exchange points we might have in common.  

We are AS6939.
