[arin-ppml] Application requests for IPv6?
What is the percentage of ISPs that were denied a reasonable sized block vs.
being forced into a /32 because that is the fad? I define 'reasonable' in
this context as - existing customer base @ something larger than a /64 per
The point is I am still hearing people say they can't deploy more than a /64
to their customers because that won't fit in the /32 they got from ARIN. I
am also hearing that when orgs walk in with documentation showing multiple
downstream ISPs they are not getting sufficient space to assign each of
those ISPs even a /32, let alone what it would take to meet the above
definition of reasonable. Essentially the question becomes 'why doesn't ARIN
have any service provider IPv6 allocations of order /20?' The implication is
an overly strict interpretation of the policy...

In response to your recent inquiry about IPv6 requests to ARIN, staff has
produced the following data.
Total IPv6 Requests January 2009 through January 2011:
ISP requests received - 748
ISP requests approved - 712 or 96%
Generally speaking, for ISPs, there are almost no denials for IPv6 address
requests. Anything not approved was likely an end-user who put in an ISP
request and needed to resubmit as an end-user. In fact, during this past
year, there have been no denials to ISPs/LIRs under the IPv6 allocation
policy which seems to indicate that the current policy has been very
End-user requests received - 464
End-user requests approved - 403 or 87%
Almost all of the denied end-user requests were to small single-homed
networks who were unable to meet any one of the policy criteria: they either
(1) weren't using enough IPv4 address space to qualify under current IPv4
policy, (2) had no legacy space, or (3) didn't qualify as a community
I hope this information helps!
