This is the 2017 summer update on the latest Second Life grid statistics currently available. My last statistics blog post was published back in April 2017 where I reported the grid was still declining.
All stats used in this blog post are from the Second Life Grid Survey & New SL Sims in past week thread via SLUniverse Forums. Tyche Shepherd collects the data from Bots that helps with the weekly reports every week.
Second Life Grid Size
Since the start of 2017 the total amount of Main Grid regions have dropped further during Q1 & Q2 with only a tiny amount of region growth from Private Estates.
Linden Owned regions have increased since the start of 2017 is most interesting. Earlier this year regions dropped under the 24, 000 mark for the first time. If things don’t change before the end of 2017 then expect the total amount of regions to be closer around the 23, 000 mark.

- Total number of Main Grid regions: 24, 002

The daily concurrency in Second Life seems to be averaging between 49, 000 (at max) – 28, 000 (lowest) on a daily basis at the moment. The Median Daily Concurrency is now at 40, 000.
The daily concurrency has dropped down since the start of 2017 and it’s not surprising as we are heading into the summer months.
Second Life Signups
As of 5th July 2017 there have been 50, 837, 795 signups for Second Life to date.
Sansar Open Creator Beta is expected to launch this summer. There is still no confirmed opening date yet. It will be interesting to see if Sansar will have any impact on Second Life grid numbers going forward.
My next Second Life Grid Statistics update will be posted in October 2017
