The views I read were that End-User is about the IP address block
being utilized for internal use.

There hasn't been any comments about reducing the fees for End-User
The comment about fee structure from Nii (apologies for the previous
misspelling of the name) was:
"It's possible some universities can afford an increase and should
be encouraged to pay more especially if holding large allocations
A suggestion may be that the board consider a new fee structure
for end users separately based on allocation"
If anyone would like the Board to consider a new fee structure I
suggest asking for that and mention the factors to consider during a
review process. The text quoted above is clearer than "Africa's
specific economic challenge".
