Just noticed today while looking into an issue for a friend that TPW must have enabled IPv6 recently and have deployed it by default on their Netcomm routers.

Good to see another ISP turn on the switch! :D

Kind of crucial when you're doing a serious amount of CG-NAT to keep up with the customer growth

If an ISP is dishing out ipv6 addrresses , must those addresses be static?

No. The prefixes an ISP gives out can be dynamic. 2Degrees does this by default.

Is it only certain plans (like the $49 one) which have CGNAT? Because this connection had a global IPv4 address.

Also to note, BigPipe is doing a lot of CGNAT, but refuses to implement IPv6.

I don't know what their policy is but have come across a number of business connections with CG-NAT so assume it's not limited to low-end plans.

Hi, all customers are offered IPv6 by default, it is up to their modem configuration as to whether they will make use of it or not.

mikesmac: Hi, all customers are offered IPv6 by default, it is up to their modem configuration as to whether they will make use of it or not.


Called TrustPower earlier this week and the are assigning dynamic IPV6 addresses to consumer users on UFB. As said by mikesmac ipv6 is already set up, so assign router to accept IPV6 and away you go, no need to call TrustPower to give you an IPV6 address.

Didn't ask about static IPV6 cost.

Does anyone know why ISPs are giving out dynamic instead of static IPV6 addresses?

So, what kind of "IPv6 address" are we talking about?
A single IPv6 address, i.e. a /64, or a subnet that can be allocated amongst client devices, maybe a /56 or a /60?
How do client devices get IPv6 addresses - e.g. can the Netcomm router do DHCP6?

DHCP is used to delegate /56 prefixes to both UFB and EUBA customers..

The subnet. Didn't ask how big that subnet is, I thought it was standard to give /64.
