Since ARIN started registering IPv6 address space, an annual registration
fee of $2,500 US has been charged to organizations approved for receiving
the standard /35 initial IPv6 allocation.

There has been an ongoing discussion about what ARIN should charge for
IPv6 allocations.  ARIN does not want to discourage registration of IPv6
or hinder the growth of IPv6 networks.

It has been suggested that ARIN change its policy so that current IPv4
subscription holders are not charged for their initial IPv6 (/35)
allocation for the first one or two years.  This temporary fee change may
allow more organizations to request IPv6 address space.

Should ARIN make a change to its existing IPv6 fee structure?
