In the IPv6 world, the smallest significant network is 18
and some odd quintillion (18,000,000,000,000,000,000)
addresses.

Think of this as your property (e.g. your yard).  Each IP address
in itself is small but without the sum of each, what do you have?

Suddenly, each blade of grass has value.

This is how a customer feels when they are given (sold) address space.


Thanks,
John
