ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2015.4. The
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion is now
closed and is available at:
Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
Description: WHOIS info does not allow to put unique names on ASN's that

product it would be super helpful on several of our range allocations if
we could place the name of the actual metro area being served.

Though it is not currently possible to identify separate AS number names
for AS numbers inside of a grouping of AS numbers in a single
registration, ARIN will accept requests to split AS range registrations
into individual AS number registration records to make unique AS naming
possible.Requests to split an AS range registration can be made through
"Ask ARIN" within ARIN Online or an email to hostmaster at arin.net.
Because ARIN can provide this service to customers, no further action is
necessary and this suggestion will be closed.
