As announced I've done some research in the distribution of our mastodon instances regarding the network (AS) they use.

The top five countries with mastodon instances:

- 36 GB
- 356 DE
- 786 FR
- 810 JP
- 1284 US

(full data: drop.leah.is/dEepjMnN )

Top 7 networks:

- 149 HETZNER-AS
- 173 INTERQ GMO Internet
- 187 SAKURA-B SAKURA Internet Inc.
- 195 AMAZON-02 - Amazon.com
- 232 DIGITALOCEAN-ASN - DigitalOcean
- 244 ONLINE S.A.S.
- 400 OVH

(full data: drop.leah.is/kYXmJJmy)

We currently have instances in 49 countries and in 348 autonomous systems.

More thant 50% of the instances use one of the top 12 autonomous systems.

Over 90% of the instances are in one of the top 4 countries.

The source are all instances that have a working IPv6 or IPv4 adress (first working in this order) and are connected to mastdon.social (nearly 3500).

I plan to release the raw data and the scripts tomorrow in a follow up to this toot.

@leah hi, thx for the stats. What do you consider "the top 12 AS" ? By which criteria ?
