    All our experiences consulting our clients about how to get their AS 
and Subnets have been pretty easy and fast.

    First get enought IP from 2 Peer to justify at least a /21;

    Now that you have 2 Peer, request the AS and a Subnet from ARIN;

    Take a day or 2 to prepare the paperwork;

    Submit it in the right sequence to ARIN;

    And LISTEN to your ARIN rep, they know how the procedure must be 
done and will help your get it done correctly.

    Simple really.
