Of course, we have less customers than we have a year ago. Not a zero in any
case. Some parts of network was rented to other ISPs and will be returned.
Some was NATed after upstream shut down the BGP. How much IP we need now we
will discuss with RIPE NCC, if they will. First, we should have to shut down
the hijackers, isn't it?
