I have based the members (Budget 2011 - 7725 Members - from RIPE document https://www.ripe.net/lir-services/ncc/gm/november-2010/ChargingSchemeslides.pdf) with the change matrix of 2012 and have recalculated the fees with the following result : Based on a calculation of 7725 members in Year 2011 the budget was about 15.190.750 EUR (based on 2011 charging prices) for the member fees. Based on the new 2012 scheme the budget will be about 18.538.000 EUR (+/- a little bit in fact of rounding difference). So in total we can speak about an increase of more than 3.000.000 EUR (about +20% as for 2011) of the member fees !?!?!?! In my calculation I don't putting in the PI space because the price of 50 EUR hasn't changed. I never seen that the costs will increase 20% within one year. So what you mean now ??
