I had some of that subnet from logicweb. Once I realized it was Afrinic I switched. Now I have the same issue with another subnet from ARIN. is all blocked still and I cannot get anyone from any of the companies to respond or unblock them.

Thank you,
Brett A Mansfield

You should be able to buy you internet service from anyone in the state and it should work equally well subject to bandwidth limitations. This is a consumer rights issue and it needs to be driven that way.
