Today's ARIN estimated depletion date:

Northstar China 3 Million.


Today, North Star Information Ltd. Co in Bejing China allocated 3 million addresses ranging from to This is the third allocation that North Start made this year. Previous allocations this year includes 500,000 addresses allocated in March and 2,000,000 in May.

It is really hard to find any additional information about North Star China. After a few google searches I found one company in Bejing with a similar name. “Beijing North Star”. However, their address is different from the company that made the allocations. Furthermore, they are in the real estate business and have only 6000 employees according to their latest financial report.

The contact persons in the whois lookup have gmail addresses. I find this a little bit odd, especially for a company that have allocated nearly 6 million addresses in 2009.

Please contact me if you have any information about North Start Information Hi. Tech Ltd. Co in Beijing. I would like to make sure that the remaining IPv4 addresses are used in a non wasteful and fair way.

    A search of the maps and chinese government SEC info reveals 18 Bei Feng Wo Road, Haidian District, Beijing,
    China to be an unidentified building containing a restaurant and hairdressers situated between ATA online training facilities (15), a Chinese middle school (16) and a hotel (20).

    The address does not appear to be correct either. All official addresses on that street seem to have a floor or room number, building number, and a street number. With a minimum of building + street number. Not just a “No. 18″. The plain “No. 17″ is a parking lot.

    Could it be a facade for the People’s Liberation Army?

    Anybody from APNIC with additional info?
    Any Chinese speaking that can help gathering more information?
