  • What you’re seeing there is the effect of APNIC’s final /8 allocation policy – the short of it is that each company can get only one allocation of 1024 IPs from the final block. Sure, it’ll take many years for that last block to run out, but that’s irrelevant to each individual company, since once they’ve got their one allocation that’s it.

    Don’t let that fool you into thinking that means they have plenty of IPs. They don’t, and ISPs there will blow through 1024 addresses in no time. The actual demand is high enough that if the allocation policy was removed, their final block would be allocated in less than a month. APNIC really is out.

No public wish lists :(
