Reaching the Last /8
The RIPE NCC is now allocating IPv4 address space to its members (LIRs) from the last /8 (185/8) that was allocated to the RIPE NCC by IANA. IPv4 addresses from this /8 are allocated according to section 5.6 of “IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region”.
This section states that an LIR may receive only one /22 (1,024 IPv4 addresses), even if they can justify a larger allocation. This /22 allocation will only be made to LIRs if they have already received an IPv6 allocation from an upstream LIR or the RIPE NCC. No new IPv4 Provider Independent (PI) space will be assigned.
