This is NANOG. To the best of my knowledge, no part of the NA in NANOG
is in the APNIC service area.

ARIN pricing is significantly better at US$100/year for ALL end-user
resources, so, only the $1250 up-front fee would apply and apparently
the partial fee-waiver for that is still in effect if your previous posting
was correct.

Really? $100/year is too much? Really? I guess that depends on whether
you think addresses are worth more than coffee. ;-)
