We're looking into an increase in the maintenance fee for both categories.
Approximately 75% of ARIN’s revenue comes from recurring IPv4 and IPv4
registration services subscription fees; less than 20% of ARIN’s revenue
at present comes from maintenance fees (and the remainder is one time fees)
Yet more than 30% of ARIN’s costs are registry services operational costs,
and more than 50% of ARIN’s costs are for ongoing policy development and
corresponding registry system maintenance and enhancement. Such efforts
either directly, or indirectly to a significant extent, benefit every
resource holder in the ARIN registry, not simply the Internet service
Again, the Board has yet to consider any new fee schedule proposal, so the
Draft LRSA 3.0 includes $300 annual maintenance fee because directionally
I believe we will need to head that way. Obviously, we need to consider
how AS numbers also fit into this plan, and figure out exactly whats is
appropriate regarding end-users vs ISPs for initial allocation fees, and
figure out whether recurring ISP registrations result in materially more
expense due to subassignment registrations/SWIPs, etc.
