Electrical switching properties of Ge-As-Te glasses have been investigated over a wide range of mean coordination numbers $(\langle r \rangle)$ in a single composition tie line. The results obtained clearly indicate the modulation of the composition dependence of switching fields by network topology. Distinct change is observed in the slope of the composition dependence of switching field, at x=25 $(\langle r \rangle=2.4)$ and x=52.5 $(\langle r \rangle=2.67)$, which correspond to mechanical and chemical thresholds, respectively. Present results also rule out the earlier suggestions such as shifting of percolation threshold to higher $\langle r \rangle$ values and the likelihood of two isolated rigidity percolation thresholds in such glass systems.
