I don’t agree …. we have to work harder to increase IPv6 uptake but the data available does not support these theories

See <>

I don’t see how this policy helps the AFRINIC community and do not support it.

I want to argue that the thought that there are still a small pool of IPv4 available, makes users in the AfriNIC region slower in considering the option of deployment of IPv6. Therefore I will support a fast way of exhaustion, which also can be achieved through Inter-RIR transfer.

Similarly, in some instances the entities that seek this transfer could be deploying infrastructure that is beneficial to the AfriNIC region.  In the business context, keeping IPs and waiting for slow uptake, can not be financially beneficial. So a transfer to an entity that needs it urgently will be provide the immediate finances, which I believe we need in the AfriNIC region.

>> Inter-RIR Resource Transfers as stated in the policy AFPUB-2018-GEN-003-DRAFT01 is an applauded development and I think will help promote business within LIRs and also help in the speedy deployment and acceptance of IPV6 in Africa. Afrinic has commenced Exhaustion phase 1, but is still an IPV4 haven compared to other RIRs based on the Internet number resource status report prepared by the RIRs <>. This is bad for development as most RIRs are now more focused on IPV6 deployment. Some RIRs have exhausted their IPV4 blocks and require IP blocks from neighboring RIRs. With this policy well implemented, Afrinic and LIRs will make substantial profit while Afrinic forces the needful development to the new internet, which is the IPV6.
