[arin-ppml] Automatic IPv6 Eligibility

Well here's my scenario. My ISP is in the process of acquiring another ISP, I wrote into arin for advice of how to go about requesting additional ip space as the acquisition will take more IP addresses then what we have left out of our current /21 allotment.

I was advised to apply asap however with the depletion procedures/protocols it didn't seem likely to quickly be able to get enough blocks from the free pool.

If an existing service provider such as myself would be able to get a free ipv6 allocation I would agree it would help transition to ipv6 faster as I need more IPs for my customers, infrastructure, etc. 

I'd at least be more willing to try to make it work for my customer ip space since there would be little or no cost involved, now the problem that remains is the equipment compatibility and third party support of ipv6.

Is it possible to still get a block to use for my ISP for $100/yr? 

Best Regards,
Josh Rowe
