How much IPv6 address space do you have?

IPv6 Everywhere

In a recent, rather unscientific poll on Reddit, IPv6 advocates were asked how much IPv6 address space did their respective ISPs give them. It looks like ISPs are getting it, and on average giving out a /56 to home users, which should be plenty for most.

The results

  • U.S.
    • Comcast /60
    • TWC/Spcturm /64 (with “hint” /56)
    • AT&T Uverse /60
    • Cox /56 (with “hint”)
    • Charter /64
    • Frontier (no IPv6 support)
  • Canada
    • Rogers /56
    • TekSavvy /56 (DSL-0nly)
    • Telus /56
  • UK
    • Sky /56
    • BT /56
    • IDNet /56
  • Germany
    • Deutsche Telecom /56
    • 1&1 /56
    • Unitymedia /56
  • France
    • Free (5 /64s)
  • Norway Telenor NO xDSL /48
  • Denmark Kviknet /48
  • Europe  Orange /56
  • Austrailia
    • Internode /56 (static, tied to account, nice!)
    • Australian WISP /56
  • New Zealand  2degrees /56 static (or /48 dynamic)

The good and bad

Of course, this is the good news. The less good news is that there are still ISPs out there which provide no IPv6 support for their customers. But it is a good start, and those who are supporting IPv6 have realized that one /64 at the home isn’t enough networks for the future (think: /64 for IoT, /64 for appliances, /64 for HVAC (such as Nest), /64 for your kids, etc, all with different traffic rules). Keep up the good work.
