Re: [Internet] Business Account & IPv6?

The benny I gain is some places are IPv6 only, it is no where near as scarce as you think...

We have some international clients that are only on IPv6 and most major Datacenters are v6 enabled and giving those addresses out more, not to mention v6 is the primary in any communication that uses both and often times actually is faster we are seeing due to different routes, not to mention most big major companies are using it.

We even have some select equipment v6 only as it has no need for v4 due to being internal use only so no point in wasting v4 addy on it.

Not to mention v6 offices more flexibility in sub-netting.

That said, we have a number of offices across the country and every single AT&T and Comcast one has IPv6.

The only area Comcast doesn't have v6 are any Cisco based CMTS due to some issues but most of those are being resolved even.

AT&T's entire network supports it just most client side modems/routers they issues don't however all our business ones do.

I just rather not have needed to use a tunnel but seems in our one location with BH that will need to be the case :/

That said we also have some places with accounts with random companies that provide it as well. So it seems it's harder for me to find a provider that has no v6 vs. on that does lol

Oh well, doesn't sound like will happen any time soon.

Thank for the replies.
