If they have immediately allocated 2.097 million out of 8.388
million, then they
have satisfied the 25% immediate utilization requirement.
In fact, 2.097 million is exactly how many they would need immediate
use for in order to justify an allocation of 8 million IPs according
to ARIN policy.
I expect the 2.097 million figure applies only to this particular
range, this comment in whois does
not indicate that Verizon has _only_ assigned that many across all
its various ranges; I would fully expect they have massively more
IPs in use.
I would expect ARIN would have followed policy, and so Verizon had to
show to ARIN their well-founded
projection that within one year, at least 50% of the new assignment
would be allocated.
And also that they met the additional requirements for ISPs; 80%
utilization over all previous
allocations, and also 80% of their most recent allocation.
