Re: IPV6 availability on TELUS Optik Internet

I'd venture at least 2-3 years off.

That's a bit optimistic for any serious changes. I reckon it'll be another 25 years before a final transition is attempted.

The comment was about initial roll out, not a complete cut over.

Most operators will run in dual-stack for awhile. (with the exception of specialized networks, eg. cell networks running v6 only)

I think you'll see servers and customers turning off v4 before their network operators do. One of the biggest culprits will be the increased spam. When you have a thousand people sharing a single IP (carrier grade NAT), you're going to see lots of incoming spam that can't be easily blocked.
