Following on from APNIC’s (Asia Pacific NIC) earlier assessment that they would need to request the last available /8 blocks, they have now been allocated 39/8 and 106/8, triggering IANAs (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) final distribution of blocks to the RIRs (Regional Internet Registries).

APNIC which is the fastest growing Internet region is expected to be the first regional NIC to run out of IP address space within 3 to 6 months time.
