I am writing in opposition to increases to the .org domain name. The 
domain name is relatively core and vital for the not-for-profit 
community. It faces no relative competition at the same gravity and 
depth as the PIR's market foothold.

A policy allowing for .org price has a disproportionate impact for the 
global south, when taken in conjunction with .com price caps being 
removed. Many non-profit organizations in the global south already face 
barriers to accessing an online presence.

Furthermore, the existing .ngo TLD is significantly more costly than 
.org. Many ccTLDs are either not well adopted, face restrictions in 
access or are significantly more costly than global TLDs such as .org.
