    Hello,

    Could anyone tell me if there's any issues/trouble utilizing pre-ARIN space for delivery? Is there anything to be inherently known with setting up mx relays for delivery to majors across that type of space?

    Appreciate any input

    Thanks

    I've had a few pre-arin /16's, they worked fine.

    You need to be careful with those blocks. There have been a handful of pre-arin /16's available for roughly a year from a couple of brokers. I am not sure you are talking about the same blocks being sold, but you need to have them announced, and you want to be careful when using them so that you do not lose their value before getting your ROI. Long dead blocks can raise a red flag once they go live again with SH. For the money being asked on them, you would not want to get burned within 30 days.

    If you know what you're doing, like Nicky said, you should be good to go. Good luck!

    Yeah.. You need to be careful with announcing of legacy space.. Especially if the space hasn't been announced/routed in awhile. Previously I had small netblocks [/20, /19] announced over time.
