Re: I want my own IPs

I ask this just for personal edification, but can you ask ARIN for a /22?

I thought the lowest they would go is a /21 for multi-homed organizations.

It's not a matter of convincing, it's a matter of demonstrating need.

If you're actually _using_ the four /24s, you can demonstrate a need for a
/22 today.  So a good first step would be to use the four /24s until
they're full.  Second step would be to apply to ARIN for a /22 to replace
them.  Renumber into that.  Then keep applying to ARIN for more space as
you need it.
