I would take issue with the assertion that you need a /19 or larger to "be
doing effective ASNs". My understanding is that as long as you get a
block from former class C or "the swamp", you should be visible
everywhere. We recently requested, and got a /21 from 65/8 from Sprint.
A phone call and some pleading got them to change that to 18.104.22.168/21
AFAIK, that's reachable everywhere from AS19975 If that's *not* correct,
I'd sure like to know...
