$1250 (x small allocation)per year with a 90% waiver through 2008.... = $125.
Wow. Your right that IS expensive.... In 2012 you'd have to pony up the whole $100 per month.

Given how much IPv6 address space exists, why is it so damned expensive? I decided it was time to turn up IPv6 connectivity to my world, but when I went to look at prices for buying even a small block of portable address space I realized I couldn't afford it.

Given that this is a fictitious resource, and that there is no intrinsic cost, ARIN should be charging about 1/100th of their listed prices for it. Is there a legitimate reason for the ultra-high prices? Is ARIN owned by Prada?
