ARIN receives 2 new /8 blocks

ARIN received the IPv4 address blocks and from the IANA on Dec. 22, 2008. We will begin making allocations of /20 and shorter prefixes from these blocks in the near future in accordance with ARIN's minimum allocation policy.

Network operators may wish to adjust any filters in place accordingly.
