UK condemned on net address shift
UK Government Called Out on Non-Support of IPv6
The problem with #ipv6 is that it's like Y2K with no (or at any rate an extremely amorphous) deadline. We all know that limping along with IPv4 will basically continue to work for the time being, and that an enormous amount of work will be required to move everyone over to v6. The reward is similarly amorphous – things will "work better" in the "long term."
So what do we need to do to kick-start this? We've already had a "World IPv6 Day" and that seemed to come and go with little fanfare.
What is the end user experience or service that IPv6 enables which will result in a groundswell of popular support for moving to IPv6? Or is this one of those things that just won't happen without a public mandate?
