enough said. number doesnt matter.
That's just about right, as while those are not among the top 10 networks, they are some of the largest and best connected ones, with the most peers and customers.
There are, however, many different ways of measuring this. My personal favourite, which I think is the most accurate, is the Knodes Index.
That seems the most accurate, as AboveNet is, for sure, the most open network of the scale that it is (tri-continental), and thus naturally [one of the very] best connected one.
Most other conventional indexes simply look at the total number of peers and customers, but this one takes it a bit further..
