To all the doubters out there saying IPv6 “will never happen”, on this World IPv6 Launchiversary let us just point you to the latest World IPv6 Launch measurements that show Verizon Wireless being the first of the top 10 largest networks to cross over the 50% IPv6 deployment mark!
Over 50% IPv6!
…as measured by Google, Facebook, Yahoo and Akamai. That’s a remarkable achievement – and if you look at the rest of the top 10 you’ll see that other networks are not far behind. As our colleague Mat Ford writes, IPv6 measurements are going “up and to the right”!
IPv6 deployment IS happening.
We are moving on from the “experimental” version of the Internet to the “production” version. The smart companies are already making the move. Where are you? If you haven’t already started deploying IPv6, now would be a really good time to start!
Congrats to the team at Verizon Wireless for all the IPv6 they have enabled with their LTE network – we are looking forward to seeing this percentage grow, and to seeing other networks join them in crossing this milestone!
