With all due respect, both AltDB and bgp.net.br are unreliable. They lack
response time and although they are replicated elsewhere some upstreams
won’t accept prefixes coming from them. Tata, for example, will only accept
prefixes from RADB and other accredited IRRs (ARIN, RIPE, etc). If LACNIC
deploys it’s own IRR there’s a higher chance those upstreams will start
accepting it.

Unfortunately, IRR is still the best operational solution that is globally
accepted. RPKI is nice, but won’t replace IRR because there’s a lot of
powerful tools around RPSL.
