Are you ready for ipv6

    So I myself am not ready for it as my isp has not rolled it out yet which is sad for me.

    I don't hear much about it and if people's providers have actually rolled it out yet so I wanted to find out what other people have.

    I am involved with an embedded software company that provides TCP/IP networking protocol stacks for designers who are making equipment that would be classified as the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. I would say that, right now, about 5% of our inquiries for TCP/IP ask about IPv6 functionality and they mostly come from Europe. Rarely hear of this need from other parts of the world, including the U.S.

    I don't think that it's been widely rolled out yet in the UK. My IP address is always an ipv4 one. I would expect that the US will be the country that gets it rolled out first

    most datacenters will give you or your web hosting company an IP v6 free of charge. When I first asked for a range of IP v6 for one of my servers the datacenter 100TB dot com gave me a /64 which is like 2 to the power of 64 addresses (that is 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 addresses)!
