As with all things technology, things can change. So, we wanted to get in touch with a couple of updates.
Our IPv6 trial is coming to an end.
Thanks for taking part in our IPv6 trial that we announced on Geekzone. We’ve had a heap of really useful feedback to keep in mind for our future developments in this space.
From 12th of June 2018 the trial will be ending and you may notice a short 5-10 minute outage while we withdraw it. We’ll be making the change overnight at a time that has as little impact as possible. There’s nothing further you need to do, however as with any outage if you find you haven’t automatically connected again, simply restart your modem or router.
We are no longer offering IPoE.
After a recent review, we’ll no longer be offering IPoE on our network. It looks like your connection is running over IPoE at the moment, so from 12th of June 2018 you’ll no longer be able to connect with Bigpipe via IPoE.
To get ready for the change, you’ll need you to update your modem/router to our recommended settings. You can find them here:
