You can and should, at least in my opinion, get at least a /32, you may
elect to receive a /36 or even a /40, if you wish to minimizing $, instead
of maximizing your future flexibility, it is the ISP’s choice.

Note: even if you elect to get a smaller block, you can go back up to /32
any time you wish, without any further justification. Furthermore, any real
ISP, with a kind of actual footprint, can justify a /28 with a minimal

The ARIN community just doesn’t dictate a business model to ISPs, it lets
them choose the business model that works for them, despite what IPv6 know
it alls like you, me, and Owen think is best for them.
