PI Assignment Size

a. Current

n/a - this is an addition to the existing text.

b. New:

The minimum assignment size for Provider Independent (PI) address space is a /24 when routing is a major issue for the End User. In such cases PI address space is assigned to End Users who are currently multihomed with PA address space or demonstrate a plan to multihome. Where justified, the RIPE NCC will assign more address space, ensuring no single prefix is longer than /24.

Where routing is not an issue for the End User, PI address space is assigned based on the demonstrated need.
