    This top 10 and these numbers are far from correct. The truth is that it’s very difficult to know exactly which networks or which fibers/cables are where. Regarding connected networks in terms of IP networks you can look at peering resources like the Peering DB or you can look at the number of connected networks that a IX (Like AMS-IX or NL-IX) has per location. That won’t give you an exact number but a good indication. This data is published openly on the web. Regarding Amsterdam, as the Digital Gateway to Europe, Equinix AM7 should be high on this list with 194 networks according to AMS-IX. SARA, Nikhef, Global Switch, Equinix AM5, Digital Realty AM1 and EvoSwitch AMS1 are also highly connected in the Amsterdam area according to the Peering DB. Hope the incorrect data in this article can be corrected.

    Hello Stijn, I do agree with. If you would also include the number of networks that could be reached through exchanges like NL-ix and AMSIX in Amsterdam this number would even be far bigger.
