PCH has this internally, but the AS-to-country mappings are pretty fluid, so we don't hand it out without a lot of caveats... Otherwise policymakers would take it way more seriously than it should be taken, since they love them some rankings.
If people generally think we should publish it every day, we'd be willing to, provided we think people are cognizant of the risks of policy folks misusing it. Or marketing folks. Or whatever.
Otherwise, email me or Gaurab or Jonny, and we'll set you up with a current listing for whatever countries you're interested in.
