At DE-CIX ( we have two route-servers (resilient setup).
We were not really actively contacting peers (i.e. did not really press
them to activate MD5).

Our figures (counted per AS not per peering as we have double peerings
both on our side as well as on customer side having two+ routers) are:

 120 peerings
  21 MD5 peerings

 ratio: 17.5%

Better than expected. I told a friend that MD5 peerings would be <10%.
