> Of the RIRs with space remaining, ARIN is unique: they will allocate to anyone legally registered in the ARIN region regardless of where the network will be operated. While this is ... friendly, it obviously implies the remaining ARIN free pool is going to be drained at a higher rate than it would be otherwise. I'm a bit skeptical ISPs in the ARIN region are so sanguine about running out of IPv4 addresses earlier than they would otherwise because ISPs in Asia & Europe are drawing on ARIN's free pool.
All of the RIRs have space remaining. Some of them have restrictions on how one can obtain their remaining IPv4 space and a very limited supply of IPv4, but all of the RIRs have plenty of IPv6 available and they all have ASNs available.
