	I must be missing something. Why would you expect need for IP addresses to 
correlate with bandwidth? I can see a company buying a DS3 for a single 
web/application server or load balancer. I can see an apartment building with 
120 network jacks getting a T1.

	It may make business sense to bundle more 'free IPs' with packages that cost 
more money. But the actual allocation must be based upon demonstrated need. 
Read your agreement with ARIN.
