Free IPv4 Pool Now Down To Seven /8s

Zocalo writes “For those of you keeping score, ICANN just allocated another four /8 IPv4 blocks; 23/8 and 100/8 to ARIN, 5/8 and 37/8 to RIPE, leaving just seven /8s unassigned. In effect however, this means that there are now just two /8s available before the entire pool will be assigned due to an arrangement whereby the five Regional Internet Registries would each automatically receive one of the final five /8s once that threshold was met. The IPv4 Address Report counter a tPotaroo.net is pending an update and still saying 96 days, but it’s now starting to look doubtful that we’re going to even make it to January.”
