Yes but I wanted to get a feel from the community and I get a notification message from RADB to pay up I wanted to get a feel from providers. I am happy to take my question off the list :)

But I pay for all that already, so it seems that using ARIN is a no-brainer.

It's not entirely free since you have to pay an AS maintenance fee and if you are assigned a netblock directly then you pay maintenance on that also. I would rather maintain everything in one place rather than paying an extra $495 to RADB if my BGP peers can source it from ARIN.

Is the ARIN registry free, then?

Hi, need some advise here. Do I still need to maintain my objects 
(and pay) RADB? I use ARIN as source and all my route objects can be 
verified with a whois. If your objects are all maintained via another routing registry 
(ARIN's, altdb, etc.) and you don't care to maintain objects with 
radb.ra.net, then you do not need to pay RADB maintenance fees.
