IPv6 / CGN

Hi,

 

So, with the news that RIPE is about to/has already run out of IPv4 addresses, has BT made any statement about this?

 

I'm not currently a customer, but I will be getting BT Infinity when I move to my new place in 3-4 months (current place has ADSL provided by landlord, so no hope of moving the account or anything clever).

 

I'm really worried that BT will charge me the same as everyone else for Infinity, but put me (and other new customers) on Carrier Grade NAT, with all the issues that causes.

 

Thoughts?

 

Joe

BT, regardless of their own IPv4 pool, need to act responsibly and do something now! It's not about whether they can still make money and hook new customers up to an outdated Internet, but as more and more parts of the Internet moves onto IPv6, those customers won't be able to connect to anything new anymore. And even more importantly, BT as a nationally significant ISP, needs to be driving the move to IPv6 forward on behalf of everyone.

 

BTl, grow up and get on with it...

Re: IPv6 / CGN

plusnet (owned by BT) made a move, they trialing CGN but no sign of ipv6.

 

This tells me isp's will do what makes them more money rather than doing whats right for the internet.

 

eg. ££££ may ring in BT's ears when they realise they may make profit by making carrier grade NAT the standard and then charging for normal dyanamic ip's as a premium, and then saying ipv6 isnt workable.

PlusNet ran trials for IPv6 but have stopped them as they're upgrading equipment and will return in the future once the upgrade has been completed.

Re: IPv6 / CGN

I switched to infinity a few days ago and it seems that they have put me on CG-NAT. My external ip reported by my hub is different to the ip reported by whatsmyip.org. Port forwarding is impossible inside the CG-NAT so I have to use a VPN tunnel that supports port forwarding every time I want to get around it.
