general meeting IPv4

Since we provide IPv4 transfer brokerage services, we are focused on potential upcoming changes in RIRs charging schemes and IPv4 transfer policies. These changes could seriously affect IPv4 market prices in future.

The following options to update the current charging scheme and optimize expenses were proposed and approved:

  1. Starting from January 2022, RIPE sign-up fee is reduced to EUR 1 000 instead of EUR 2 000
  2. ASNs, as usual, are excluded from the EUR 50 yearly charge.

Ondrej Filip offered to review the current charging scheme model being in place for the last 10 years and point out to the experience of other RIRs.

The following models of a progressive charging scheme based on the internet number resources (IPv4, ASN, IPv6, PI) held by LIR were proposed by Ondrej Filip:

Model 1

The model includes 5 categories and different annual fees for each:

1. For extra small LIRs who hold /23 or smaller IPv4 prefixes the RIPE annual membership fee shall be EUR 500

2. For small LIRs who hold /22- /21 IPv4 subnets the RIPE annual membership fee shall be EUR 1000

3. For medium-size LIRs (/20-/19) – the membership fee shall be 2000 EUR.

4-5. As far as large (/17) and extra-large LIRs (bigger) the fee shall be EUR 4000 and 8000 accordingly.

Membership registration fee shall be 500 EUR.

! Multiples LIR registration shall be suspended

/24 from free IPv4 pool shall be sold at the discounted market value – What a great idea!

An IPv4 transfer fee of EUR 500 shall be implemented and charged from Medium, Large and extra-large companies for each IPv4 transfer

Model 2

The model includes 6 categories and different annual fees for each:

1. For LIRs without IPv4 prefixes the RIPE annual membership fee shall be EUR 200

2. For extra small LIRs the RIPE annual membership fee shall be EUR 700

3. For small LIRs – EUR 1100

4. For medium-size LIRs – EUR 1900 .

5-6 For large (/17) and extra-large LIRs (bigger) the fee shall be EUR 3500 and 5700 accordingly.

The membership registration fee shall be 500 EUR.
