ISP's still have quite a few IPv4 addresses to give out to it's customers, this figure is just from free IP address space not taken up by anything. At the moment it's not possible to give out IPv6 addresses over Chorus's network without using a 6 to 4 tunnel.

Most ISP's are not IPv6 ready, which is a bit of a worry. So I won't expect the IPv6 Changeover to happen anytime soon.

IPV6 to end users won't be happening any time soon. For a start you'll need a IPV6 capable modem if you don't already have one, and the ISP needs to fully support IPV6.

I still don't believe we're anywhere close to running out of IP addresses in the next year.

Your modem probably doesn't even support IPv6.. and your ISP needs to support it as well..

Yeah I would have thought it would be ok given that the ISP handles layer 3 and above.

IPv6 Does work as it's encapsulated along with IPv4.

Looking at your signature, and the upload speeds there, I think you have to worry a bit more about other things your ISP can do before turning IPv6 on.

Just saying...

Back on topic, Geekzone was IPv6 enabled in our previous colocation provider, but we don't have an IPv6 address with our new datacentre provider. Not in a hurry though. As a content provider, we saw only about 50 unique visitors per month coming via IPv6, out of 650,000 total.

Until you get ADSL2 going... then it can get over 0.9. Fibre might happen in the next 10 years though.

You need ADSL2 to get the 16Mbps down he's getting.

The point is that if content providers aren't IPv6 enabled then there is little reason for consumers to switch. Considering how the latest cutting edge technology is to this site I think, even if there are hardly any visitors you need to make a start. Is everything still in place for when Datacom do get IPv6?
