Hi John,

Proof of infrastructure? You can check whether or not equipment is in
place with ordinary ratios for the claim.

Proof of traffic? You can spot-check packet patterns to see if they're
consistent with real users versus careless assignment.

But let me turn the question around: ARIN staff have been doing this
for quite a while. How would staff handle the hospital as ISP scenario
I posited? HIIPA says you don't get to look at the user data. It's the
law. So what would data would staff seek for their audit instead?
