I'm sorry.
If your ISP doesn't have an ASN,
it's not an ISP.  Full stop.

There *are* some fundamental basics
that are necessary to function as an ISP;
having an AS number and being able to
speak BGP are pretty much at the top
of the list.

If you cannot manage to obtain and support
an AS number as an ISP, it is probably time
to consider closing up shop and finding
another line of work.
