Hi fellow Geekzoners,
Been a while since I've been on here - so much to catch up on!
Anyway here is my problem: For the past couple of months I have found YouTube painfully slow - videos take ages to buffer and no way would I even think about trying to watch in HD. That is until a friend told me it could be due to my IPv6 tunnel. Sure enough, disabling IPv6 lookups in Firefox resolved the issue. Problem is - I LIKE MY IPV6!
I use SixXS as my tunnel provider with ACS Data in Wellington as the POP. Latency to the POP is brilliant and Facebook over IPv6 is no problem whatsoever. Have not noticed any significant slowdowns anywhere else but YouTube.
Basically what I am wondering, is what is causing these issues? I know it may have something to do with DNS and IPv6 routes, but is there anything I can do?
Reason I am posting in this forum is I have heard through the grapevine that some ISPs are letting people in on IPv6 beta tests. I am wondering if anyone here from Telecom knows anything that they may be doing and that I might be able to join in on?
Having a fully IPv6 native internal network is awesome, and definitely increases my geek factor! Not to mention the massive new i7 Server that is about to go in to production!
Anyway if anyone has any ideas about what I can do, that would be brilliant!
