[arin-ppml] New Policy Proposal

This is essentially a case of providers that have to allocate addresses in much the same way as cable ISPs covered under, but which may not be able to meet the 50% across-the-board requirement.

Essentially, this isn't about a blank check, it's about addressing a squeeze created between the regulators (CRTC) and the ability of the incumbent Cable carriers to control the underlying network topology, the competitive TPIA is required to deploy addresses which may not meet current utilization requirements depending on the percentage of market they capture.

As I understand it, if you have 3 competing companies in a market, for example, you are virtually guaranteed that at least 2 of them cannot meet the 50% utilization requirement.
