If Brian is an end-user, the minimum (/41 to /48) cost for IPv6 assignment 
is a one-time $1,250 plus max $100/year after the first year for this and 
any other ARIN end-user/assigned resources.

No introductory price schedule for IPv6 for end-users/assignments, whereas 
there is one for ISPs/allocations.
