[IPv6] IPv6 Comcast Business Deployment

Does anyone know when Comcast will start deploying IPv6 for business class users?

Any idea when they will start handing out statics for it?

Never and never?

Honestly, they have been on mute about IPv6 to the HIGHER PAYING business class customers. You would think they would be working with their HIGHER PAYING business class customers as more of a priority as they would have more of a need over an end user.

I think part of that is that "HIGHER PAYING business class customers" are going to demand it works, first time, every time, with full support.
Most business customers aren't interested in being beta testers, and CC is still feeling it's way through deployment and likely still roughing out the additional training that Business CSR's will need to promptly help their customers with ANY problem.

You could inquire in the direct forum, but these things take whatever time they take, so a firm commitment is unlikely.

We are working on it - and it'll still be a bit of time yet. We're awaiting updated firmware for the newer devices that could support v6.

If a customer is subscribed to business HSI but using a traditional modem such as a SB6120 will it receive an IPv6 address when it is enabled in an area for residential? Just wondering if the distinction is tied to the actual service subscribed or the actual device in use.

That may do the trick - give it a try... (and let me know the results)

Nothing in Boynton Beach yet, but I did hook up a DIR-825 just in case it decides to make an appearance.

Hmm, does that mean that after the recent botched 3.1.4.51.1 firmware "upgrade" (which was reported to include "hidden" IPv6 capability) to the SMCD3G-CCR, Comcast is investigating routers from other vendors?

Last time I tried, I was able to get an IPv6 IP via DHCP while having Comcast Business and the SB6120. Its been a month or two but I would assume it still works.

Except its possible that there are more residental customers then business customers whos collective payments are greater then that of business customers? I dunno, just a possibility. I do hope the business customers get the good stuff too so they'll be happy.

I agree that the business customers possibly may have greater expectations to the quality and stability of their service compared to that of residental customers who also have high expectations but might be more forgiving?

I think the reason why they don't do the business class first is because they don't want to screw up the productivity of businesses who rely heavily on the internet, in case something goes wrong. Testing things out with residential customers first will allow them to fix any problems that arise without causing businesses to lose a boat load of money because of an outage. Being a lab rat is a two way street, can either go well or horribly horribly wrong. »www.multichannel.com/article/482···itch.php »www.eedailynews.com/2012/03/comc···-of.html
