Maybe, maybe not (it is, as much else, about perceptions) but /60
certainly seems to be "screwing them over", and a /56 is the
minimum would should see (with the ability to request at least
up to a /48) IMHO.

HIPnet ( )
suggests that a /56 is the minimum one should expect in order to
support multiple sub-delegations within the residence.  Some $CABLECOs$
appear to be delegating only a /60 to residential customers (even though
some of those same $CABLECOs$ have participated in the project;
I guess that just proves the left hand and the right hand do not talk).
