Has anyone run into other providers that refuse to take RWHOIS
information? As I understand the general goings on, ARIN just wants the
information available so that we can generally contact the correct
people to deal with issues as the arise.
Now, I'm having an issue where verizon is telling a customer of mine
that they can't use an assigned block because it isn't in SWIP form.
And they're quoting back ARIN to us.

While I understand your point, it is currently the Verizon policy to
have the SWIP beforehand. It is possable to have the greater range with
one name and the subdomain regestered to you. For example look at
18.104.22.168 on ARIN's site. Search results for: 22.214.171.124
Verizon Internet Services VIS-162-84 (NET-162-84-0-0-1)
126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52
Performance Group INC VZ-PRFMNCG-1 (NET-162-84-100-160-1)
184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11

Have they ignored: http://www.arin.net/tools/rwhois.html and the policy
itself says "ISPs must provide reassignment information on the entire
previously allocated block(s) via SWIP or RWhois server for /29 or
Am I wrong for assuming that they are unreasonable in this?
