ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2012.9. The 
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion remains 
open and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)


I suggest that ARIN make a temporary fee reduction for initial IPv6 
assignments (to end-users). Some possibilities are a $1,250 reduction 
for one or two years or make the initial IPv6 assignments free for a 
year and then half price for a year.

That would do two things: First, it lowers a potential barrier to IPv6 
deployment in the enterprise, pure cost of assignment. Second, it puts a 
touch of urgency on initial IPv6 requests: "Hey boss, we have to at 
least get our assignment this year if we don't want to be forced to pay 
later especially if coordinated with officer attestation of IPv4 exhaustion


Thank you for your suggestion numbered 2012.9 upon confirmed receipt, 
requesting that ARIN make a temporary fee reduction for initial IPv6 
assignments. This suggestion will be forwarded to ARIN's Financial 
Committee (FinCom) for consideration and subsequent recommendation to 
the ARIN Board of Trustees.

The ARIN Board of Trustees will be discussing fees at their August 2012 
workshop, at which time this suggestion will be considered. ARIN will 
provide you an update from either the FinCom's and/or the ARIN Board's 
consideration of this matter.

We thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion 
Process. This suggestion will remain open pending feedback.
