I definitely clear an annual *additional* (to the LIR cost) invoice for the TT-Service and the care-and-feeding of our TTM Box :-) > It is possible either that my recollection is faulty, or that I just > misunderstood. I definitely know that the NCC has spent quite some effort to drastically reduce or eliminate those cross-subsidising things. That's one of the reasons why the att. fees for RIPE Meetings have gone up considerably over the years, and new LIRs get a (2?) voucher/s as part of their sign-up fees. > /Niall I presume this stuff is never perfect or completely done, but IMHO the NCC is fully aware of these issues.
