Per page 13 of the above presentation, here are the 2011 actual
costs as broken down by the existing fee categories:
X–Small $1,245,000 11.51%
Small $4,506,000 41.65%
Medium $2,835,000 26.21%
Large $ 909,000 8.40%
X–Large $1,323,000 12.23%

We have not done the above calculation, but it can be derived from the
whois data if you desire to do so.

the total IPv6 holdings of thousands of ISP's with smaller address holdings.)
