RE: Why does Sprint have address filters again?

Sorry, should have clarified. The first ASN should always be the least
expensive.  When acquired at the same time as a netblock, the fees for
research and paper handing should be handled as one request. So if ARIN
breaks down the cost of a $500 ASN request to say it costs them in man power
to call the upstreams and verify the data is correct, then you should save
the $250 on processing the request for the netblock.

No, you just said "This does make sense - a lot of sense." when Jamie
Scheinblum suggested that "unbundled" ASNs be made unreasonably high.

While I agree that $500 *might* be too high, I honestly do not think
something on the order of $200 or $250 would be too high, especially as a
"one time" fee with the $30 recurring charge.

Good point.

I have not.  But I haven't been following this as closely as I probably
should have.
