Re: standards for giving out blocks of IP addresses

  • From: David R Huberman

As I suspected, we're arguing over mis-communication brought about by poor
phrasing.

- End-users' address space determinations are based on 25-50.

- ISPs' address space determinations are based on their three-month needs.

- Both are judged to have used their existing assignment 'efficiently' if
  they have used 80% of it.

As Randy Bush likes to say, I'm glad my competitors make life so
difficult for their customers.

Come to Global Crossing. You won't have that problem. All customers
receive address assignments/allocations sufficient to achieve their goals
within the framework of the assignment policies proscribed in RFC 2050 and
by the pertinent RIR.
