Reference/Comments A route policy or routing policy is the description of what routes a Service Provider will accept and readvertise. Some will only take full blocks and only from the registered owner (registered in ARIN or RIPE). Some will allow customers to multihome (ie advertise the same routes via two different providers) some will allow customers to advertise specific routes as well as blocks.
