Whats this SLingshot? You don't even have an APNIC IPv6 allocation yet? Geez.
<@SlingshotNZ> @JAMMAN2110 Hi, the modems are IPV6 ready, the network supports IPV6. We haven't allocated any IPV6 ip's yet and won't until we buy some-Ben

Sounds like a cop out to me, APNIC made is stupidly simply to get v6 space, You login and click a button and based on your IPv4 allocation they give you a suitable IPv6 size, Seems to start at a /32




All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated

I thought that they had been allocated 2404:4400::/28 over a year ago.

If I were to take a wild stab, I'd say that it seems more likely that the methods they're using to manage bandwidth don't work correctly/are inefficient with IPv6 traffic.

If there is no demand. There is no point in purchasing them at this point.

SS have IPv4s still to use up.

Well, there's only 3 residential ISPs that offer IPv6 and only one does it by default. (XNet is a trial, not sure about Uber? Snap does it by defaultk, but dynamic prefixes)

But when new websites start popping up with only ipv6 space, slingshot will still be issuing 'old internet' addresses and you might need to change isp to access these new websites.

If you only have v6, you own't be able to get to it. However most people will be dual stacked, have both v4 and v6..

Anyone wanting to provide information on the internet via webpages would have to be an idiot not to dual stack, as most of the world is still using IPv4. Would be a huge marketing blunder on their part.

Scenario simply wouldn't happen, unless the site is specifically intended for IPv6 capable users viewing only. (eg IPv6 test page)


In any case there are other methods of enabling connectivity between IPv4 and IPv6 networks.


If hosts are not wise enough to utilize, then its their loss.
