Attention Verizon DSL Customers: Opt out of CGN  before it disrupts your VPNs, Gaming Consoles, and other applications!

Look at who owns class A address space… most of these organizations should be forced to give up a large portion of their address block. Forced by whom? ARIN did not exist when these legacy class A network allocations were done, and were not involved in the agreements. None of the RIRs, nor IANA itself, have the legal authority to reclaim this IP space. And don’t take my word for it.
There is absolutely no reason that Ford needs a whole class A block, nor Stanford, nor Department of Social Security of UK. Maybe there is…at which point, they are quite welcome to use 10.0.0.0/8 like the rest of the internet.
I bet they squat on these and sell them off at a high price to ISPs. Not quite. They own these blocks, so calling it squatting is inaccurate. Further, they are probably using segments of their class A blocks, and migrating away would be time-consuming and thus expensive. Until relatively recently, it wasn’t worth the effort to stop using these IPs…then this happened
