Your upstream would pay. If your upstream is AT&T (for example) they do not pay ARIN anything.

AT&T competes with ARIN or vice versa. Actually, in the U.S. non-profit companies
are not allowed to engage in the same business as a for-profit company, even if the
non-profit only breaks even. ARIN should really be for-profit, which it is and likewise,
so is ICANN. AT&T would pay ICANN directly, using this example.

PSI could be another example.
