That's different from who the provider peers with.  We (AS1312) don't
peer with much of anybody, but I *hope* our routes are pretty widely
advertised.  Anybody *not* seeing routes for AS1312? (And yes, most
of the routes end up going through one or another of MATP's PoP's).

So what failure mode are you trying to protect against by finding a provider
with a lot of routes?  I suspect there's probably a better metric to deal
with the actual concern...
