Interested in joining the trial

Hello,
I spotted the trial is still running and I'm interested in joining, are there any spare account available for the trial?
Cheers,
Tom

Re: Interested in joining the trial

I'll second that. Would be interested in getting real IPv6 and putting my HE tunnel to bed Smiley

Me two, is there any chance my Plusnet account could be IPv6 enabled? I guess Not.  Cry

It's unlikely the trial is going to be extended in its current format. If you're wanting to dabble with IPv6, you could do worse than to try setting up a 6in4 tunnel in the interim.

Re: Interested in joining the trial

the logical step, now that the trial is completed, is an IPv6 implimentation plan, and a time table for rolling out IPv6 for everyone Wink

Re: Interested in joining the trial

Well I guess I will have to keep on using my TunnelBroker IPv6 tunnel in the mean time. What time scale are we looking at of when we will get full native IPv6 support. And on a side note, when will consumers in the UK get full gigabit internet speeds?

10-20 years time?
There is no reason for consumers to have access to gigabit speeds now.

There is a reason. The reason is so that we don't have to endlessly read people complaining about not having it.
IPv6 is needed to boost router sales, for people who weren't excited by the big numbers of ac wireless.

Re: Interested in joining the trial

If nothing else, it would take fibre to the house to give gigabit speeds. Thats a lot of fibre that needs to be deployed. If you are a buisness, you can get this now - well you can get fibre, nt sure what speeds they give you. Anyway it costs mega buck - and most people wouldn't be up for paying.
When I look at what ADSL2+ is doing, its just about pushing the limits of what speed of signal you can get down copper wires. Now yes, the cabinets of the street could multiply, so there is less distance to do in copper - but you can see the issues, its an infrastructure problem again.
IPv6 though, is heading rapidly towards just flipping a software switch in many ofthe gateways and routers.

Re: Interested in joining the trial

BT are rolling out IPv6, due for completion by December 2016  Smiley and I don't seen Plus.Net being far behind because the "technical leaders and evangelists" will all soon leave.

Re: Interested in joining the trial

Apparently I'm the only person who's ever asked for IPv6. Maybe we've been a bit quiet!...

Hi [Removed]
[Removed]: at 16:02:42
Good afternoon, I'm [Removed]. How can I help?
Gabriel Hopkins: at 16:03:16
The IPV6 tunnel I use from sixxs is getting shut down. When will plusnet offer native ipv6?
Gabriel Hopkins: at 16:03:33
otherwise i'm going to have to look at alternative providers
[Removed]: at 16:03:42
There are no plans to offer IPv6 in the foreseeable future.
[Removed]: at 16:04:03
Can I help with anything else?
Gabriel Hopkins: at 16:04:49
Can you raise any sort of product request to say customers want ipv6?
[Removed]: at 16:06:26
You are the first customer I have ever had request it Gabriel. IPv6 has lost a lot its urgency since
the reason why it was originally developed is no longer an immediate problem with NAT and
other similar technologies.
