    RIPE IPv6 end user policy

    Am I understanding it correctly that presently there is no way for an end user organization to obtain IPv6 allocation from RIPE? Their Feb 8, 2011 policy document states that:

    ---
    To qualify for an initial allocation of IPv6 address space, an organisation must:

    a) be an LIR;
    b) have a plan for making sub-allocations to other organisations and/or End Site assignments within two years.

    I believe that is the case. You'll need to goto an LIR to get your allocation.

    End users get assignments. LIRs get allocations, to make suballocations and assignments from those allocations.

    I see, so ARIN does direct allocations while RIPE does not, but Europeans can still get PI space via ISPs...

    You can multihome any v6 prefix that you like, provided it's /48 or larger. That seems to be the filtering criteria amongst all the transit providers.
