Packet Clearing House Report on Internet Exchange Point Locations

This map plots the density distribution of the Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) which form the core of the global Internet, by country. Countries must have root nameservers, country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) nameservers, and Internet exchange points (IXPs) within their borders in order to maintain autonomy and internal connectivity during periods when international cables are damaged.

We use the United Nations list of countries, and countries which display as less than one pixel are listed below, but aren't indicated on the map. Last updated Thursday 20th of June. This report is free for reuse and adaptation with attribution.
