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 5.1 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. No new IPv4 Provider Independent (PI) space will be assigned.
