You didn’t automatically get the /48 IPv6 resources, you became a member
and AfriNIC allocated you IPv4 and ASN resources that your needed at a fee
and/with additional IPv6 resources at no additional cost per below.
3. Resource Members - IPv6 fees and Categories

IPv6 is in its early adoption stage in our region. To encourage and promote
its usage in the region, the AFRINIC Board ratified the following measures:

3.1 For existing members (with IPv4 allocation(s) and/or EU/PI assignments):


   No additional fees as a result of the issued IPv6 prefix will apply.
   - Not to consider the new IPv6 prefix allocation and/or PI assignment in
   calculating the Billing category of the member.

3.2 For New Members (for IPv6 Only members).

The following fees will apply to Resource Members who have been issued with
only IPv6 prefixes. A 50% discount on the Allocation fee and 100% discount
on the first year's membership fees will be applicable. For the three
subsequent years, 75%, 50% and 25% discount on the membership fee will
apply respectively.
