The purpose of the anycast policy is to allow people who would
nomally not qualify for a /24 (perhaps because they will be using
only 1 address) to nevertheless get a /24 of IPv4 address space for use
If you need more than a /24, then you should be able to
apply for it under the normal (non-anycast) IPv4 policy.
