At their meeting on 10 December 2015, the ARIN Board of Trustees adopted 
a new fee schedule that will be effective 1 July 2016. The new fee 
schedule is the outcome of a multi-year community consultation process 
and 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 which 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 usage

 > End user organizations may now choose to receive 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 pending fee schedule is available at:


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