Current Text (23 May 2023)
Section 126.96.36.199 Slow Start has been a part of the NRPM for two decades, and successfully served to constrain the rate at which ARIN issued IPv4 address allocations to its members for many years. Following the exhaustion of the free pool, as well as the introduction and refinement of transfer policies, Slow Start has ceased to be applicable to the operations of ARIN’s registration services. Staff has confirmed that this policy has not been used since 2018.
