You don't need a Class B. Period. I'm sorry, I don't agree with your reasoning. If you need a large block, why don't you consider getting a /19, which I think is the smallest block most providers will advertise? I doubt you even need that much address space, and I don't think your usage justifies even a /19. Let the people who need the space, have the space. > template, so don't be to quick to grab for the high moral ground!!

What's the difference betweeen you, and your customers, many of whom are big sites that need to route streaming audio and video on a time-critical basis? They aren't going out and trying to get /16's, Mark. You want to do what you're doing just so you can measure traffic. That's ridiculous. > I also wonder if there aren't free speech issues involved if US entities > start dropping traffic based on non technical factors? Red herring. I don't think your technical situation merits a /16. -- Anyone who spams me will be subject to torture by Jake, my killer attack hedgehog, and/or Lizzy and Junior, my man-eating iguanas.
