[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2020-10: Requirement to Demonstrate Utilization of Reassignments and Reallocations for ISPs Seeking Initial Allocation from ARIN

Hello ppml community!

I just wanted to recirculate Draft Policy ARIN 2020-10 for feedback. This
draft policy would remove the requirement that ISPs that already hold
reallocations or reassignments from upstream providers satisfy ARIN's
efficient utilization requirements for those reallocations/reassignments
before they are able to qualify for their initial allocation of space
directly from ARIN, and get on the waitlist to receive that space.

Under current policy a new ISP that does not have any reallocations or
reassignments qualifies for a /24 without having to establish efficient
utilization of any previous space. This allows new ISPs to get on the
waitlist sooner than ISPs holding reassignments/reallocations, despite the
fact that neither type of organization holds space directly from ARIN yet.

1.  Do you believe that NRPM's current distinction between ISPs holding
reassignments/reallocations and new ISPs without any
reallocations/reassignments still makes sense today?

2.  Is leveling the playing field by allowing all ISPs that do not
currently hold space directly from ARIN to qualify for a /24 without
demonstrating prior use--regardless of whether or not they hold
reallocations/reassignments--a fair solution that reflects the realities
faced by these organizations today?

Thanks!

Amy
