    • Hi Jordi,
      
      Thank you for clarification.
      I understand that this policy is for those who are not IPv4 account holder.
      
      
      Thanks,

With the proposal, I’m removing the requirement for “at least 200 customers” (there may be ISPs that have much less number of customers than that) and “be an existing LIR with IPv4 allocations”. There is not more IPv4 space, is not realistic to have such requirement, furthermore, in the short term, I’m sure, there will be IPv6-only ISPs, so again not reason for asking them to have IPv4 allocations.
