This page describes the Peering policy of Wikimedia Foundation's IP networks.

The Wikimedia Foundation operates several wiki-based projects, including Wikipedia, the popular online encyclopedia, which has become a global top-10 website. Wikimedia delivers its web site services from AS14907 and advertises different prefixes based on geographical locations. More details about our IP and ASN allocations can be found on the IP and AS allocations page at wikitech.wikimedia.org.

Our network is open to peering with other parties, on IPv4 and IPv6 and have presence at multiple Internet Exchange Points. Up-to-date information about the facilities and IXPs that we are present in, as well as peering information can be found on our PeeringDB page.


The Wikimedia Foundation is a not-for-profit charity that depends on the gracious donations by many individuals and companies. We operate on a small budget, so please let us know if you are able and willing to contribute by donating network connectivity services!

Things that might be helpful include:

  • IP transit (full or partial)
  • Transport connectivity
  • A few RU of rack space for a router
