As of October 2010 the IANA has allocated 36/8 and 42/8 to APNIC, leaving only 12 /8s left in the IPv4 free pool. So far the following /8s have been allocated to various registries throughout 2010:

1/8
14/8
27/8
31/8
36/8
42/8
49/8
50/8
101/8
107/8
176/8
177/8
181/8
223/8

If this same rate of registry allocations continues, the IPv4 free pool will be completely exhausted in 2011. Of the 12 /8s that remain, 7 of these will be allocated using the regular process, then the final 5 will be allocated simultaneously across all registries.

Have you started planning for IPv6? If your current provider for hosting or other services are coming up for renewal, now is the time to seriously consider switching to a provider that offers native IPv6 so you can start to plan, develop, and test for the future.

Does your provider speak IPv6? BORGNET dot US does.
