Yes. My comment was about the statement that "€5/month" is reasonable. I
don't find it particular reasonable. That's why I wrote those figures.
In fact, if you break down the cost for every IP for an ISP it's quite
small but they seems to think that they should get a few thousand
percent in return.
is a LIR, to my knowledge there is no fee per resource
per year, but
I'll have to double check.
You have Service Fee (membership), Independent Internet Resources (PI/PA
addresses, ASN), Legacy Internet Resources.
Every spring and autumn there is a debate about who should pay what
amount and for what. I really hate that meeting. It's always in late
afternoon Wednesdays in the week of the RIPE-meeting. Actually, it's
next week in Amsterdam, Hotel Okura so I should pack my bags and be on
1095865 IPv4 addresses that they maintain in the RIPE-db.
If half of them is used for static assignment and you pay €5 it's
€2.7M/month. That's good bushiness.
And the fee for being a LIR is a lot of other
things. Request IPv4,
IPv6, ASN. Use the RPKI-system etc.
It's a plain RIPE membership fee, actually.
Yes, it's a membership fee. But membership comes with a lot of other
things than a cost for IPv4. That's extra. Membership gives you the
right to vote in the general meeting, request resources, get service
from NCC among other things.
