You misunderstand. ARIN may not sell IP space as if it where a commodity. But by making cheaper large IP address blocks than smaller ones is allows the creation of just such a commodity market at a second level. In anycase how is a smaller block allocationa a chaper "service" than a smaller one? They should all cost the same per IP address, or even increaser as the block gets larger to give an incentive for intelligent use of address space, aggregation, and things like NAT. Not the other way around. > randy > Aleph One / [email protected] http://underground.org/ KeyID 1024/948FD6B5 Fingerprint EE C9 E8 AA CB AF 09 61 8C 39 EA 47 A8 6A B8 01 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
