sorry was unclear - I was guessing $1500+ for ASnumer + IP Assignments
but not counting  ISP costs for a year.  Looks like ARIN is charging
about $1250 per year for a new IPv6 assignment and the AS yearly cost
is rolled into that.  Granted ISP costs will probably be in the
ballpark of  $150 per month for 2 consumer grade connections and more
for business or better connections.
