/29 IPv6 allocation is now possible (RIPE-552)

You can now get /29 IPv6 subnet instead of default /32 from RIPE, when you’re getting new address allocation. RIPE-552 document has been updated in point 5.1.2 and now not only /32 is default allocation size for new IPv6 subnets. Of course any allocation between /29 and /32 is possible without providing additional documentation.

It’s possible to extend current /32 allocation to /29. The subnets were allocated in schema that if you requested initial /32 subnet, next /32 were reserved not straight after that, but space for extending to /29 were left.

Look to Jan Zorz’s presentations or check RIPE webpage for more details.
