This is a good discussion.  We are currently utilizing our /32 IPv6 space.  If we are forced to go to a smaller allocation at this point we would be forced to renumber, and it would cause issues for us and for our customers.  And I totally concur that an increase in IPv6 fees at this early stage of IPv6 adoption will be counter productive.

I suggest that if XS or smaller allocations are introduced, that existing allocations be grandfathered without a price change.  There is enough IPv6 space that this should not be a problem.

Best regards

Subject: [arin-discuss] Status of realigning the IPv6 fee structure?

What is the status of realigning the IPv6 fee structure so that it matches the current policy of allocating based on nibble boundaries? This has been discussed in the past, but I have not heard anything lately. Jumping from $2,250 right to $9,000 doesn't make much sense.
