We are leasing a /24 from that block as well, it's caused us similar
issues but they are mostly resolved now.

Luckily we've now deployed our first ipv6 customers with 464xlat and
it's working well, so I hope to be able to stop leasing that subnet in 2018.

It's hard for small ISPs that can't afford to buy IPv4 blocks, now that
ARIN is not handing them out. We're lucky we got a /23, if we'd started
a few years later we'd have nothing.
