If one ip address was a square of area 100 by 100 ft, this entire map would be 1241 miles across, for a total area of 1.541 million square miles. That's about 41% the area of the United States, the size of a medium-to-large country. The ipv6 map would be half the size of the galaxy. MegaMutant453 (talk) 04:56, 12 November 2022 (UTC)

He forgot the 172.16-172.31 private block. Way late, I know but I only just noticed. 01:51, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Since the table is for the first octet only, it's not possible to show the 172.16-172.31 block. Drawing a table big enough is left to you as an exercise. However, he shows Class E addresses (240-255) as "unallocated", which is a bit misleading because routers are required by RFC 1812 to discard packets with these addresses, which are reserved for "future use". 18:21, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
