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.
