Happy 2020 everyone.

Is this the year we get IPv6?

I certainly hope so.

I hope so too! We have made some progress with the core network and with edge vendor interop, so I'm optimistic.

I am also hoping for the same thing this year.

I will officially say that 2020 is probably the year we deploy native ipv6 on our fiber to the home networks. ;)

There has been significant behind the scenes upgrades and migrations of core network and systems infrastructure to support native v6 services. On the systems end, I'd expect our final blocking project, bringing native v6 to our recursive dns clusters, to be completed in the next couple of weeks.

Can't wait to get rid of my 6RD tunnel... :)

Here's hoping! Native would be best.

I was using 6RD very happily with a pfSense router on my bonded Fusion DSL X2, but I was unsuccessful getting either 6RD or a 6to4 tunnel working on my gig fiber connection. I finally gave up this week and requested a tunnel from Hurricane Electric (dba, and had it all working in under 30 minutes.

Still, while that's great (and I do love HE), I'd really really rather have my v4 and v6 traffic both appearing to come through of the same provider...
