Subject: What does a /8 Lease For ?
> There are 16,777,216 IPv4 addresses in a /8.
> Many companies lease those addresses for $10 per month.
> It is common for a broker to take one month as their annual fee in the real estate market.
> Given the above...that would mean a /8 leases for $160,777,216 per year.
> Will AT&T and the other companies be prepared to pay ICANN that each year ?
> ...will that be split with Lucent ?
> 012/8 AT&T Bell Laboratories Jun 95
> What about ARIN, RIPE and APNIC ?
> Will they be paying that each year to ICANN for *each* of the /8s they have ?
> Does ICANN need that much revenue from Address Space Leasing with the $1 per domain per year fee?
> ....which may yield ~$50,000,000 a year...
> Should domain name fees subsidize address space users ?
> Why does ARIN pay ICANN and not AT&T ?
