I'll +1 that @michaelmurfy! I was all set to swap to MR until I learned they have indefinitely delayed their plans to launch IPv6. When I questioned them about it they responded that they had delayed it due to 'lack of customer demand'. BP and MR really should be stepping up and saying, this is the future of the Internet, we are progressive companies that like to stand apart from the big players, we're going to give our customers the very best the internet has to provide. In response to a post by kelots from MR I put together some stats which he never responded to. I'll repost them here:
RSP's Running Dual Stack: Internode in Aus is (as of 2008). AT&T in the US has since 2011 (with 53% of traffic now using IPv6). Charter in US since 2012 (although recent reports state that the roll out has stalled). Comcast have been trialing it since 2011 (with 42% of their traffic now using IPv6). BT in the UK is rolling it out this year to all customers. In NZ 2Degrees support it; Orcon do for DSL and rolling out for Fibre early this year; Inspire and even Woosh (who aren't exactly known for their tech prowess these days).
97% of TLD's support IPv6, there are over 7549199 domains world wide with AAAA records yet only 20.9% of ASes run IPV6 (source). Around 17-20% of the world top 1000 websites use native IPv6 inc half of the top 10 (and all of the top 3). Nearly 10% of Googles traffic is now IPv6. Belgium leads the way (according to Akamai) for adoption with 31.7%, where as NZ currently sits at a poultry 39th with 0.8%.
The problem we seem to be stuck with is that ISP's say its not worth the investment until services support/require it and services says its not worth the investment until ISP's support it (anecdotal based on my research). It amazes me that I can get a NZ based VPS with dual stack for $5 a month yet I can't get IPv6 with the largest RSP's in the country.
To quote MR on their site: "We believe in delivering an awesome internet experience for all kiwis at mass market prices." What better way to have an awesome internet experience than by being able to enjoy everything that the internet has to offer at incredible speeds and an awesome price?
Won't someone think of the kitty
