I am copying your query and this response to Roger De Salis, a member of the
Council of ISOCNZ who a week ago convened a meeting of 15 or so fairly key
New Zealand ISPs to sort out some of the issues relating to the IP numbering
space inherited through what was at one time the sole New Zealand portal to
the Internet through a gateway operated by Waikato University. Roger is a
member of the ISOCNZ Council and our organisation has undertaken to
cooperate with the ISPs in New Zealand to assist in working through some of
the issues surrounding historical allocations of IP number space.
The good news is that the major and minor ISPs in New Zealand are able and
willing to work on this issue jointly. The group has yet to publish any
notes coming out of the meeting but Roger will be able to comment on the
present situation. (please Roger!)
