IPv4 spread pies

Something different for today:

Doing webapps for a global audience brings in the requirements of localization. For this I had a look on the world wide IP Address spread. Especially the amount of address range fragmentation and the overall address allocation. The latter one does not surprise me at all. Putting them into two pie charts.

The US own about 50% of all available addresses, while China got 8% and Japan has 6%. First come, first serve.

The fragmentation is different.

50% of the addresses create only 15% of the overall 129.763 fragments. The addresses of the UK has 10% of all fragments while Germany has 9%.

Now I am able to do a better model for finding the right country. :)
