How does one suddenly justify needing 1,000,000 more IP addresses (explosive expected growth in the next couple 
months?)

I can easily see people moving through those IPs in short order if you have a datacenter or other deployment you are 
working on.  I've heard stories from some of the popular sites about how they have consumed all the 'private' space 
for their internal-side servers/infrastructure so started to go after public IPs (in addition to IPv6) to workaround 
the problem.

AT&T hasn't seen the wireline subscriber growth, but I'm sure their wireless side, datacenter, and other needs are 
driving growth.



I would really hope that wireless providers are planning for IPv6
instead, although a recent thread about Sprint LTE indicates maybe this
is wishful thinking. I know Verizon is but the single LTE MiFi I have
doesn't do IPv6, but I've seen customers with Verizon phones coming in
over IPv6.
