In the RIPE region where I believe Tayeb is based, the minimum allowed
by policy is a single /64 and there is no maximum (although for larger
than /48 paperwork is required). Cf. ripe-589 section 5.4.1. Other than
that the policy makes no recommendations.

FWIW, my ISP gives me a /60, which works just fine for me. My parents
get a /62 from a different ISP. No complaints from them either - but I
don't think they have any clue about any of this though. :-)
