Policy Proposal 101: Multihomed initial allocation criteria

Proposal Originator: Chris Grundemann

Proposal Version: 2

Date: 30 December 2009

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Modify item letter "d." under section 6.5.1.1. Initial allocation
criteria to the following:

d. be an existing, known ISP in the ARIN region

or

have a plan for making at least 200 end-site assignments to other
organizations within 5 years

or

be currently Multihomed (or immediately become Multihomed) and have an
ARIN assigned AS number.

Rationale:

I think this is a better approach than removing or lowering the end-site
assignment requirement for any/all ISPs while still providing more open
access to IPv6. Since these are "or" statements, it is one of the three,
so existing LIR/ISP *or* 200 sites *or* multihomed.  IMHO, if you are
not multihomed *and* not serving (or planning to serve) at least 200
customers, you might not be (probably are not) an ISP.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
