It depends on the ears :) There are pro's and con's about /48 for
residential customers. After all we decided to go for a /48 for
every customer.

In most cases the access router will get the customer routes from radius.

Yes. If a (business) customer needs more than a /48 and if this is covered
by the RIPE policies he can get another /48 from our PA space.

On the residential side it's limited to one /48. For now :)
