We have decided to participate in the Internet Society's World IPv6 Day. IPv6 is not actually that new and we can be rightly proud that we have been IPv6 and IPv4 capable since the birth of Trunk Networks however, not all of the Internet is quite so advanced.
On 8 June, 2011, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour "test flight". The goal of the Test Flight Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.
As mentioned in our recent news article, all customers will have IPv6 allocations by 14th February. You may not be able to use them just yet as, for example, not all ADSL routers are capable of handling IPv6 yet but we are working on that. We are hopeful that by World IPv6 Day we can be supplying all customers, no matter the size, full IPv6 connectivity.
If you would like further information or assistance with IPv6 set up (Most IPv6 capable routers are not very friendly if you are not a bit of a techie!), please contact us.
