I'm in the UK and looking to setup two independent providers for a redundant internet connection. The problem I have relates to IP's and AS numbers. I believe that each ISP in the UK is going to give me a different set of ip's for me to use and that each ISP won't advertise the other's ip block. My questions are
1. How do I get around this?
2. I have been advised that I need to get ISP independent ip's, is this true?
3. I am told that I need to get these isp independent ip's and AS number from RIPE and that I need to request a /24 block as that is the minimum required for full bgp peering, is this true?
Thanks in advance
