Hi Thu Thuy and all,
Indonesia are having the same issue regarding on the lowering the minimum allocation size.
Many new ISP's based on their request cannot meet the current minimum allocation size criteria and can only fulfill with a /22 or a /21.
They are also having a difficulties to obtain more than a /26 assignment from their upstream provider or LIR's.
So, it would good, if this proposals can also be approved on the next APNIC Open Policy Meetings.
Looking forward to hearing from you all,

Dear APNIC, NIRs and all,
We are IP team of VNNIC-NIR.
On Address SIG of 46th Ripe Meeting ( 1-5 September 2003 ), there was a formal proposal to lower the minimum allocation size from /20 to /21. It mostly had consensus on this issue. Now Ripe already set the minimum allocation size /21 for new address blocks (220.127.116.11/8 and 18.104.22.168/8) that they obtained from IANA.
This proposal is issued base on the foundation that many new startup LIRs can't get a PA allocation (due to not being able to prove /22 utilization). They use PI space for themselves and their customers to get started until being qualified to obtain portable allocation.In the end, we have multiple PI networks plus a PA in the routing table
Not being able to prove /22 utilization is also a problem of Vietnamese new ISPs. On behalf of Internet Community in Viet Nam we would like to post this information onto "sig-nir" and "sig-policy" mailing list with the ambition to receive many precious comments feeded back from you, especially from others NIRs.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
