Hi Kristofer, I thought that a customer can NOT get an AS# from Ripe without first becoming a LIR!! Vise versa, he/she can become a LIR without necessarily getting an AS#. Am I missing out on something??

There is nothing unusual about announcing PA address space, even if it's not yours (as long as the LIR in question permits it), so your customer should simply go ahead and request for an AS (well, only LIR's can request an AS, but there is nothing wrong with a LIR requesting one for a customer). The LIR would then make the assignment origin in the customer's AS. However, you might want to make your customer sign a legal contract to clearify this point, i.e. that the address space belongs to the LIR, not the customer, in case they want to switch to another upstream provider. -- Kristófer Sigurðsson Nethönnun ehf.
