Hello everyone,

I live in Canada.

I am currently a student studying and operating a full web hosting company
at the moment. I started as small as leasing a server and now I have grown
to have operated my own full BGP network and my 2 own /22's.. In 4 years.

In the process, I learned everything on my own, did all ARIN applications,
etc.

I found out about the fellowship program today, can I still register or is
it too late?

I am greatly interested in bringing my hosting services to the IPv6
platform.

Please let me know.

Regards,
Mohammed
