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".
