Thats I told. I know a company who have a /22 PI-Space. He must pay only 50 EUR / year. A LIR must pay 750 for that range. Sorry but is this real ?? Where is democracy that each part must pay the same for what he gets ?? Maybe better to include the PI space in the scheme with 50% discount as they don't can use courses/etc. ?? RIPE was thinking about that ?? >> More members would avoid increase in membership fees, but this is >> actually hold back due to lack of IPv4 and the backdoor trade which >> start to flourish wildly ... > > I just finished a request for a /22 PI for a customer last week through RIPE. As long as the pool isn't finished yet, the only thing that flourishes wildly is the media speculation on IP trading ... That will / might change later, but currently it isn't the case. > I haven't had anyone come up to me offering X amount for the IP's we have in use.. did you ? Yes we must do like same for a /23 for a new customer because now everybody knows that IPs are rare. We got only one SPAM mail where they bid for 8x/24 in one block but nothing true behind.
