In the case of my 3 VPS's, I've received /64s from both and Arp Networks or 55,340,232,221,128,654,848 addresses. I'm not sure I see a rationale for assigning 8 addresses. That is, I could understand assigning a single address or a /64 but 8 addresses? I'd think that'd be more complicated/error prone than either the /128 or /64 options. A bit odd.
