How can I get a /22 allocation from the last /8?
The RIPE NCC is now allocating IPv4 address space from the last /8 according to section 5.6 of “IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region”. This means that an LIR may receive only one /22 from the last /8 of IPv4 address space. To receive this /22 allocation:
- An LIR requesting their first IPv4 allocation must justify need for IPv4 address space to get the /22 allocation
- An LIR that has already been allocated IPv4 address space by the RIPE NCC in the past must show that 80% of this IPv4 address space is being used in valid assignments or sub-allocations
- All LIRs requesting a /22 from the last /8 must have already received an IPv6 allocation from the RIPE NCC or from another LIR before the /22 can be provided. The IPv6 address space does not have to be in use to be eligible for the /22.
