ARIN by the Numbers

ARIN by the Numbers

This year has been an exciting time for us here at ARIN, so we thought we’d take a peek at some fun numbers from 2014. Some of these you’ll probably expect – like how many IP addresses we’ve issued throughout the year, and others you probably won’t – like how many cups of coffee we’ve drunk (yes, we’re a bunch of coffee addicts). Enjoy these stats as we reflect on our year!
