I've been using 2degrees since they were Snap but am annoyed by their move to CGNAT meaning I can no longer connect back to my home by using dynamic DNS. I'm looking for a new ISP and Voyager is at the top of my list at the moment but I wanted to confirm some details.

 

I don't want to give up IPv6, if only from a "be the change you want" perspective. Old comments suggest they offer this but perhaps that is no longer the case.

 

As I mentioned earlier I want to avoid CGNAT. I don't need a static IP, dynamic is fine (assuming it doesn't change ridiculously often).

 

They offer to sell or rent a Huawei router but I'm not sure of the details of it. I'm wondering whether to get one of these or bring my own but need some more information to make this decision.

They have ipv6 and static ip. Not sure about it CGNAT as I signed up with static ip which only cost you a one time fee at $13.

Just note that you have to ask for IPv6 to be enabled, it isn't by default. They got back to me in less than a day with all the prefix details etc. and it's working perfectly.

The transition was easy enough, though without IPv6 so I asked for that.

 

It took a few days to get a reply which said there will be a one off charge of $15 for this so that is a bit annoying.

Heya @anth,

 

There is absolutely no charge for IPv6 - it's free, zip, nada, zilch, zero.
You will get a /64 linknet, and a /56 delegated prefix.

 

What there is a charge for, is an IPv4 static IP - which is a one-off $15. - perhaps three is some confusion there?

 

If someone has provided you the wrong information, please let me know your ticket details via DM, and I'll follow up for you.
