Frontier allocates a /13 or about 500,000 addresses from ARIN, in a week that otherwise had very few large allocations. 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.
