Dear All,

I don't support this policy.
In fact, This is a challenging situation.
HEI having IT infrastructure and in need of more IP Ressources (supposed to have skills for IP v6 deployment)
HEI with poor IT infrastructure and which doesn't even have a pool of IP from Afrinic.
With the IP V4 addreeses exhaustion, my opinion is that the policies should avoid to set conditions for IPv4 Trade on the black market and encourage IPv6 deployment.
This policy is making easy the allocation process to HEI who are considered as end user >>>reduced fees>>>good opportunity for black market.
The non application of this policy will speed up the spread of IP v6 in HEI.

With Regards.

No, it's not fair to make that assumption.
