RE: I want my own IPs

The general rule of thumb for ARIN IP space is that if you need IP
independence, you can't have it. <g>

You've basically got to have around 16 /24's utilized before ARIN will
do anything for you.  Once you're at this point, they'll give you a /20
to renumber everyone, but will reserve a contiguous /19 for you if you
can justify that you'll use it within the next 3-6 months.

It's a real fun Catch-22. :)

Subject: I want my own IPs

I have recently been turned down by ARIN for an
address block. I currently have 4 /24's from ISP's and
would like IP independence. How do I convince ARIN to
give me a block -- /20 I guess? The form I filled out
does not make it easy.
