Today ARIN implemented the new Fee Schedule adopted by the Board of 
Trustees on 10 December 2015. The new fee schedule is the outcome of a 
community-comprised fee review panel and community consultation process. 
The new Fee Schedule includes the following changes:

*Creation of four new service categories; 3X-small, 3X-large, 4X-large, 
and 5X-large; these are intended to further recover ARIN's costs across 
a broader set of service categories that more closely align with the 
benefits received
*Realignment of the IPv6 and IPv4 resource limits for each category to 
provide for more cost-effective IPv6 fees
*End user, ASN-only, and Legacy organizations may now choose to receive 
additional ARIN services via a Registration Services Plan (the same 
services and fee package provided to ISPs)  – those which do so become 
ARIN Members (with associated voting rights in ARIN elections) as well 
as the capability to report reassignment information and/or provide 
utilization data via the Shared Whois Project (SWIP)

These changes further balance overall fees so that customers receiving 
comparable services are paying comparable fees where feasible, and also 
enable a reduction in many cases to the fees for smaller ISPs.

The new Fee Schedule is available at:


Please review the Fee Schedule FAQ for details on the changes:


ARIN has developed a tool to allow customers to view an estimate of 
their fees under the new schedule:


The fee calculator is provided as an aid for registrants to determine 
the potential amount of their annual fees. We do not guarantee its 
applicability or accuracy in regard to your individual circumstances.

If you have additional questions, please contact billing at arin.net or 
submit via Ask ARIN, while logged into your ARIN Online account.
