We finally got our own IP's after burning through almost ten /21's from
upstream carriers.  They finally wouldn't give us any more.  :)

The "portable" type, that is.  

We also have a lot of customers who expect one or two Class-C's "just
because the last place gave them to us".  Yeah, right.  

ARIN says if you're not 80% utilized they won't give you more.  I can't
put my other customers in jeopardy of not getting more IP's when they
need them to give you a Class-C for ten machines!

Boy does sales get upset when we say NO.
