LACNIC recently allocated 1 Million addresses to NIC Mexico for further allocations to organisations in the region. This allocation pushes LACNIC’s pool a low level. We might see LACNIC requesting 2 more blocks from IANA soon. That allocation would most likely be the last allocation of IPv4 addresses LACNIC ever will make.


RIPE NCC and APNIC are also getting close to needing more addresses so we might see a total of 3 allocations of 2 blocks each soon. After the summer, I expect that we only will have 9 usable block in the IANA pool (except for the additional 5 that is already reserved for each RIR).


The estimated depletion date has been steady for the last couple of months. It is steadily pointing to a depletion of the IANA pool in March next year.
