Asia Pacific Network Infomation Center (APNIC) announced that China telecom, Guangdong provice today got 18.104.22.168/10 allocated. This is the first allocation from the 183-block that APNIC got from IANA in April this year. APNIC will most likely ask for 2 more /8 from IANA in Novemeber.
This allocation of 4 million addresses along with a 500,000 allocation to LG powercomm (http://www.powercomm.com/index.jsp) in South Korea ends a pretty busy week for the RIRs.
France Telecom got 22.214.171.124 – 126.96.36.199 totaling around 1 million IPv4 addresses allocated today. This allocation will move the IANA depletion date earlier with about 10 days.
Frontier allocates a /13 or about 500,000 addresses from ARIN, in a week that otherwise had very few large allocations. 188.8.131.52/13 is now allocated to Frontier Communication in Rochester, NY. The only other allocation worth mentioning from this week is a /14 to Telefonica Argentina.
In total, only about 10% of a /8 has been used up this week. That is less than half of the anticipated 25% of a /8 per week or about 1 x /8 per month. With that kind of allocation rate, the projected depletion date is pretty stable at about 500 days from today.
