Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2016-7: Integration of Community Networks into existing ISP policy

Version Date: 26 October 2016

Problem Statement:

The current Community Networks (Section 6.5.9) has not been utilized by organizations. The definition of a Community Network is overly narrow in scope and has complicated requirements. The existing text does not specify whether an Organization will be considered an end-user or ISP. This policy change would relax the definition of a Community Network, while still retaining modest controls. As well it would integrate the key components into the existing policy without requiring a specific section.

Policy statement:

Current NRPM Text

2.11. Community Network

A community network is any network organized and operated by a volunteer group operating as or under the fiscal support of a nonprofit organization or university for the purpose of providing free or low-cost connectivity to the residents of their local service area. To be treated as a community network under ARIN policy, the applicant must certify to ARIN that the community network staff is 100% volunteers.

New NRPM Text

Current NRPM Text
