RE: IP address fee??

  • From: Jacob M Wilkens

I agree.

It's my employers policy that a T1 customer recieve a /29 (up to a /28 if they 
can legitimize it based on the ARIN policy). A T3/DS3 customer is granted a 
/24 by default.

I'm not exactly sure what the purchase price is for additional space, but I do 
know that whatever space they request must still adhere the ARIN usage and 
guidelines. (goes for DSL, Dial, etc requests as well)
