Here is an explanation if you are curios why the predicted depletion date was moved to an earlier date all of the sudden. APNIC made some very large allocations yesterday.

  • China Mobile allocated a quarter of the 223/8 netblock. This equals about 4 million addresses and the addresses were in the range –
  • China Telecom allocated about 750 thousand addresses to the Shanxi province in the ranges – and – Additionally they allocated about half a million addresses to the MeiMengGu province in the range – a few days ago.
  • NTTDoCoMo in Japan allocated the range – or about ½ million addresses.
