A few days ago, NTT Japan got a /10 or about 4 million addresses allocated by APNIC. This is the first allocation from the 180/8 block. APNIC got the block from IANA in April. NTT is a front runner in IPv6 but I guess they still need substantial amount of IPv4 addresses.
APNIC continues to burn addresses pretty quickly. Today BroadNet in South Korea got a /13 or about half a million addresses and Oriental Cable Network in China got a /14 or about 250 thousand addresses. APNIC’s pool of free addresses is just above 2 x /8 and they will probably allocate new addresses from IANA soon. Historically they have been doing so when they have a little bit less than 2 x /8 in their free pool.
Ripe continues to burn fewer addresses than I expected, this is what’s pushing the depletion date out right now. The depletion date will most likely be pushed out even more over the summer. This is due to the fact that we don’t expect any large allocations during the summer from Europe, they are on vacation.
