I believe that is why Richard specifically mentioned peak utilization. If
there are 20 modems but 6 of them are only ever in use at a given time, that
is a waste of both modems and IP addresses. It isn't ARIN's business if the
company is wasting money on modems, but it is ARIN's business if the company
is wasting IP addresses.
