All our experiences consulting our clients about how to get their AS and Subnets have been pretty easy and fast.

First get enought IP from 2 Peer to justify at least a /21;

Now that you have 2 Peer, request the AS and a Subnet from ARIN;

Take a day or 2 to prepare the paperwork;

Submit it in the right sequence to ARIN;

And LISTEN to your ARIN rep, they know how the procedure must be done and will help your get it done correctly.

Simple really.

Try looking at it from an outsider's point of view instead. If you're new to dealing with ARIN, it is not uncommon to find the process is absolutely baffling, frustrating, slow, expensive, and requiring intrusive disclosure just shy of an anal cavity probe.

I recently had to do the ARIN process for a customer from beginning to end. Never had experience with ARIN, nor its methods or templates (only RIPE experience).

Took 5 weeks to get a /19 and then an additional 4 weeks to get the ASN. YMMV.
