Remember when AS 1 was Genuity?  First BGP session I ever set-up was with AS 1.

Speaking of AS1 - I've been wondering, what's it being used for? It looks like Level3 owns it, and it's announcing a handful of prefixes and peering with a bunch of random ASes from many different countries.

John Orthoefer and I (and dozens of other BBN folks on this list) both worked for BBNPlanet at the time that and were assigned. John was one of the folks who built and ran that system.

So when he said "I wish we could have used" and my comment of "I think the dial modem folks beat us to..." was referring to the fact that when 4/8 was first being deployed on AS1 we started assigning blocks to various groups and they realized that<> had already been delegated to another internal group (I think it was the dial group).

So it looks like GE will be solvent for a few more years and DNS is incoming.

Quoting from the post:


        Apparently bought in two chunks:<> and<>.

Previous owner was GE.

Anecdotal reports across the Internet that AWS EIPs are now being assigned in that range.<><>
