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.
