[arin-ppml] Application requests for IPv6?

Leslie,

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 customer -.

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...

Tony -

    To my knowledge, ARIN hasn't denied any ISPs a reasonable-sized IPv6
    block, if you consider it reasonable to issue according to adopted policy.

    You should make sure that folks coming to you are aware of the 2011-3
    draft policy <https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2011_3.html>  and
    express support for it on the PPML mailing list (and during the PPM if at
    all possible), as it makes changes to the allocation policy which would
    likely address such concerns.

Thanks!
