[AfriNIC-rpd] Definitions of LIR versus End User

Hi Guys,

Let me just state, that I do not think there would be any problem to potentially raising the fees for an end user on an annual basis.  For example, if you went from $100/$200 a year to even $1000 a year, its still in the reasonable range.  I would argue that the difference between LIR and End User though is currently excessive.  If we raised the end user fees and dropped the LIR fees to perhaps make a more inclusive fee structure, maybe thats the answer.

That is one of the reasons why I have asked AfriNIC for the statistics in a previous email, so that we can do a proper analysis of where the revenue that is required is being generated from, and then perhaps can discuss how this could be moved around to a way that the community is happy with.
