I can't justify the new block. I have a few thousand potentially
addressable hosts, definitely not enough to fill multiple /48's, the
same as pretty much every other network out there with a very few
I went the other route, as suggested by many people, and attempted to
submit my application as a LIR, given that we run a separate
transport/transit backbone from our content serving network (two
separate AS's, one providing transit services to the other). I was told
that we don't meet section 220.127.116.11 of the NRPM -
"be an existing, known ISP in the ARIN region or have a plan for making
at least 200 end-site assignments to other organizations within 5
years.", however when pressed as to how 10310 or 15169 meet that
requirement (specifically 200 end-site assignments to other
organizations), I got no answer. The reality of it is that neither fit
that description - Yahoo and Google provide transit services to
themselves only, and while they may have 200 end sites, they are
definitely *not* other organizations. I do not understand why ARIN
management would have made exceptions for these two companies (and
probably many others).
