Re: /8 end user assignment?
Hi David, I realise that but: 1. Softbank BB is not on my radar of likely /8 candidates (of course, geography may be the reason for that) 2. We know cable companies, dsl providers and mobile companies can use this many IPs, but they generally seem to make use of NAT and IPv6. If everyone in this category who could justify a /8 applied and received them we might be in real trouble with our IPv4 space. I had said elsewhere this was unprecedented but was then pointed at 126.96.36.199/9, 188.8.131.52/10 which is Comcast assigned in April. I'm surprised none of these assignemtns have shown up on mailing lists..
