> Section 2b
> "AFRINIC will apply a 50% discount to organisations which justify that
> they are official Academic or Research Institutions in their countries
> and demonstrate the exclusive use of assigned/allocated resources for
> not-for profit academic or research activities. In most cases, such
> members fall under the End-site category. Academic and Education sites
> which will request to be LIRs must be requested to provide further
> documentation in regard to their network infrastructure and to the
> need for assignments to other organisations other than their own.
> AFRINIC may seek the African Association of University (AAU) advice on
> this category of member"
> This seems to imply that Universities would be automatically classed
> as end users and expect to prove they are LIRs with extra
> documentation, or I am I misreading it?
> You would assume so, but apparently that is not the case.  I am not sure I
totally understand it either.  There seems to be a lot of confusion around
this issue, and that was another reason for writing the policy, it
clarifies it and makes sure that in future the policy is clear, precise and
there can be no misunderstandings
