Re: IPV6

They said:

At least 1% of our high-speed data subscribers will be able to reach IPv6 websites by June 6, 2012.
So according to wikipedia that's ~87,000 customers... which really doesn't seem like much. And they've made no promises about how long it will take to have it available to every customer.

It would be nice to know when TWC will allow the SBG6580 and ARRIS TG852 modems to have IPv6 capable firmware. I know that when Wideband (now ultimate) first came out the modems of choice were the SBG6580 and UBEE DDW3611 which TWC's website mentions IPv6 support for the later.

You're joking, right? Even cables' IPv6 leader Comcast doesn't support IPv6 on those RGs. Once Comcast gets it, add about 2 years and that's about when TWC will get around to it.

It is better than zero customers and they have to start somewhere.

"It is better than zero customers and they have to start somewhere.'

Agreed, it is being worked on across many markets but right at this time I doubt there are 87,000 customers who know what it is!

I very much doubt that.

Doubt all you want, this site is not a reflection of the Internet user. I would say less than 1% of the people I talk to on a daily basis have any idea what an IP address is let alone when IPV6 may be available to them. At this point in time its not relevant.

That's nice, not everyone that is aware of what IPv6 is and is interested in having IPv6 enabled service knows about DSLR or comes to this site either. There are a lot more people who are aware of IPv6 that have never even heard of DSLR.

Consider this. Comcast has only v6 enabled 50% of their CMTS's and they're at 3% of their Internet customers having v6 running. That is somewhere around 500,000 customers and that's barely scratching the surface. Once they complete the other 50% to have 100% roll out by the middle of next year they will have no problem hitting 10% and that's without doing any work to inform the "masses" about what IPv6 is.

Of course it's better than zero. But it's still sad that after all this time that we've known we need to switch to IPv6 that was still their goal deployment (and, yes, I know it's not just TWC who are at fault for this). This is something that they could've done at the same time as upgrading to DOCSIS 3.

Having been an Internet provider myself, this is hysterical. 99% of normal users have NO clue.

I am not denying that aspect. Both from a firmware perspective and roll out perspective we should be much further ahead. There is still more than enough work going forward but enough firmware / software is ready and the core Internet connectivity between transit providers is good enough. Now is the time for more edge access networks to roll out dual-stack service. There wasn't as much movement in 2012 as I had hoped but there is a lot of testing going on even if a lot of it is not visible. We will start seeing a lot more progress in 2013.
