Hi Justin, If you need a /25 and BGP for multihoming or anycasting, get a /24. The cost you impose on the system by using BGP *at all* is much higher than the cost you impose on the system by consuming less than 250 "unneeded" Ip addresses. I did a cost analysis on a BGP announcement a decade or so ago. The exact numbers have changed but the bottom line hasn't: it's ridiculously consumptive.
