Sprint filters

  • From: Hank Nussbacher
  • Date: Wed Feb 19 07:02:19 1997

I have an organization which I allocated 147.237.0.0/16 from my country
block.  They then wanted to subnet and hand out /24s and /23s to the
dozens of offices they have scattered thru the country and to allow each
office to connect to whatever ISP they wish.  I told them that Sprint
would block the announcements of /24s and the like when coming from
147.237.0.0.  

They said, then why does Sprint allow its customers to announce /24s from
their nets?  They gave me as examples: 148.212.0.0 and 145.248.0.0.
I checked and sure enough here is what I found:

I didn't have a good answer.  Can anyone tell me what I should tell this
organization?

Thanks,
Hank
