Yea probably that too, good catch. So how about;
"To qualify as separate sites, locations must either be in separate
cities and/or metropolitan areas, or if within the same city or
metropolitan area, each location must have an independent connection to
the Internet, each from a different provider."
Or is that to restrictive?
So that would be a /48 per city with an additional /48 per site within a
city that has a different internet provider.
So if you have a network connecting locations in each of Denver,
Houston, and Atlanta, 2 locations in LA with different Internet
providers for each, 2 locations in Chicago with the same Internet
provider, and 3 sites in NYC, 2 with the same Internet provider and 1
with a different Internet provider, would count as a total of 8 - /48
sties or a /45 assignment instead of the 10 locations with a /44 assignment.
