The day I lose a public, routable IP address.....is the day I will call Time Warner Cable to replace U-Verse.
And then use TWC for another 6 months to a year until they deploy CGN.
It's not a problem going away. The solution is use IPv6.
In fact, ARIN won't get any new IPv4 addresses. Addresses returned get returned into the IANA pool. Those will go to APNIC where the need is greatest.
