Allstream Static Routing Policy

This document outlines and Allstream Business Inc. and/or Allstream Business US, LLC. through its subsidiaries (“Allstream”) policy when performing customer static routing. The policies herein are designed with the intent of maintaining Allstream as a good internet citizen, reducing possible routing problems internet wide, and to reduce the possibility of legal implications of originating IP prefixes foreign to Allstream’s network.

Allstream will only static route Allstream owned net-blocks if the following criteria is met:

  1. Allstream’s IP Admin has assigned a net-block from an Allstream CIDR block, and the net-block has a valid SWIP record reflecting its proper sub-delegation.

Note: Net-blocks delegated and routed to Allstream customers within Allstream CIDR blocks will be advertised to Allstream peers as aggregate CIDR blocks only and will not be advertised individually.

Allstream will only static route net-blocks foreign to Allstream’s network if their prefix length is less than or equal to /24 and one of the following criteria is met:

  1. The net-block has been delegated to the customer directly by ARIN (or similar registry) and the customer has provided LOA to Allstream indicating that it is acceptable for Allstream to route the net-block.
  2. The net-block has been sub-delegated by another upstream of the Allstream, the sub-delegation has been SWIP’d to that customer, and the customer has provided LOA to Allstream indicating that it is acceptable for Allstream to route the net-block.
  3. The net-block has been directly delegated by ARIN (or similar registry) to another organization and that organization has provided LOA to Allstream indicating that it is acceptable for Allstream to route the net-block.

Allstream reserves the right to add, delete and modify any of the policies at any time at Allstream’s sole discretion without notice.
