And maybe those /25+es (didn't check as I'm on the road at the moment). So it's pretty much all gone now. > > Tore Right, as per the announcements  as well, we're officially in final /8 land now, and IPRAs ran the "available pool" down to the ground. So, somewhere between 35-60M EUR locked up for the RIPE NCC now, from one-shot-LIRs, with current policy. Does the RIPE NCC need all this money or will that complicate things, especially w.r.t IPv4 as an asset issues? Or does it matter what we do? IPv4 just became an asset in this land regardless. :-) Best, Martin  http://www.ripe.net/ripe/mail/archives/ncc-announce/2012-September/000615.html  https://www.ripe.net/internet-coordination/news/ripe-ncc-begins-to-allocate-ipv4-address-space-from-the-last-8
