You can find the full list of anchors, a map of their locations, a list of the 
hosting organisations and more information about RIPE Atlas anchors online:

As a follow-up to some discussion on this list, we wanted to reiterate that we 
made the decision to support IPv4-only anchors because the goal of RIPE Atlas 
is to measure as much of the Internet as possible, and right now, that includes 
IPv4-only networks. We also believe that measuring networks before and after 
they enable IPv6 provides useful data. IPv4-only anchors are clearly marked as 
such, and we will implement checks to ensure these anchors become IPv6-capable 
as soon as their ASNs begin announcing IPv6.

In the meantime, the RIPE NCC will continue to actively promote IPv6 deployment 
through our training courses, IPv6 Act Now website, IPv6 Roadshows and other 
programs, and our IPv6 Program Manager will follow up with any hosts requesting 
an IPv4-only anchor to help them in any way possible. We believe that 
supporting IPv4-only anchors will provide a more comprehensive understanding of 
the Internet and that the entire Internet community will benefit from more 
measurement data. You can learn more in this RIPE Labs article:

We are particularly interested in deploying anchors in the Middle East, Western 
Asia, Latin America and Africa in order to add more geographical diversity to 
the measurement data.

There are several organisations that want to host a RIPE Atlas anchor but don’t 
have the necessary funding. To learn more about sponsoring an anchor, or for 
any other questions, please contact us at

And don’t forget to let us know if you’re doing something interesting with RIPE 
Atlas data - we always want to hear about your use cases, research and
