Came across this article on 2degrees FAQ: Changes to IP Addresses (CGNAT)




Looks like it's for broadband customers, no indication of when. Not surprised this is going to happen, given the price of IPv4 addresses and 2d not increasing their broadband prices for 2019.


(Thanks for supporting IPv6 on broadband by the way, would be nice on mobile too... :) )

Hi All,


Sorry for the delay in getting back.


The shortage of IPv4 addresses is a problem shared worldwide which has been anticipated since the late 1980s, because of this we have been an earlier adopter of IPv6 for over 10 years for our residential subscribers. Due to the low adoption rate of IPv6 by providers, this has not solved the problem of IPv4 address exhaustion. To enable us to keep offering broadband services to more Kiwis at a competitive cost, we need to move to CGNAT.


So far, we’ve moved around a thousand customers who have been working with us, testing and providing feedback, this has gone very well with the vast majority of customers noticing no impact to their broadband service. We’ll move on with a phased approach for our remaining customers, with a few thousand moving across before the Rugby World Cup, then the remaining customers moving over to CGNAT by end of the year.


Whilst we’ve been really chuffed so far, we understand there might be some instances where customers may notice the change. If you have any concerns with your broadband service, get in touch via PM and we’ll talk you through the options we have. ^SW
