LinkedIn now providing World IPv6 Launch measurements

We’re excited to announce that LinkedIn has recently started providing data for our World IPv6 Launch measurements. They join Akamai, Google and Yahoo! as our set of measurement sources and will help to deliver a more robust measure of IPv6 deployment for registered networks.

The latest update to our measurements, including input from LinkedIn for the first time, has been published. You’ll notice that the inclusion of new data has resulted in some networks showing a noticeable increase or decrease on previous trends. This is a natural consequence of incorporating another measurement source. We expect to see the overall rising IPv6 deployment trend continue in the coming months.

A new entrant this month is British Sky Broadcasting (AS5607) with a measured IPv6 deployment of 1.90%. It’s great to see a major UK operator finally making serious IPv6 deployment efforts.

Last month we highlighted SKTelecom, one of the largest South Korean mobile network operators. Then they had just begun their rollout and they are clearly making progress, with measured IPv6 deployment increasing from 0.34% to 1.33% – great progress in the space of a month!

Don’t forget – if you’re turning up IPv6 on your network please register and be counted!

T-Mobile USA join the top 10

We’ve just published the latest update to our measurements of World IPv6 Launch network operators. We continue to see very encouraging growth in measured deployment across hundreds of networks both large and small.

This month T-Mobile USA, who have been growing their IPv6 deployment at a remarkable pace over recent months, joined the top 10 with over 43% IPv6 deployment. Their measured deployment has grown from less than 5% in just 12 months!

A new entrant to highlight is SKTelecom, one of the largest South Korean mobile network operators. They have just begun their rollout so expect to see their measured IPv6 deployment grow over the coming months.

We expect to continue measuring IPv6 Launch network operators throughout 2014.

IPv6 deployment spreads – new entrants from Europe, Asia and North America!

A little later than usual, we’ve just published the latest update to our measurements of World IPv6 Launch network operators. We continue to see very encouraging growth in measured deployment across hundreds of networks both large and small.

Continuing the theme from my last post, I’d like to highlight some of the networks new to our list that illustrate the global nature of IPv6 deployment taking place:

  • Orange Polanda leading provider of telecommunications services in Poland
  • BH Telecom, Sarajevoa leading telecommunication company in Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Chunghwa Telecom (HiNet)the largest telecommunications company in Taiwan
  • T-Mobile Czech Republica major mobile network operator in the Czech Republic
  • Centurylinkthe third-largest telecommunications company in the United States in terms of lines served
  • Tele2a major European telecommunications operator headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden

These are all networks new to our measurements and showing growing and significant levels of IPv6 deployment. Don’t forget – if you’re turning up IPv6 on your network please register and be counted!

We expect to continue measuring IPv6 Launch network operators throughout 2014.

Going global – Networks from Malaysia, Norway, Ecuador, and Switzerland Join the IPv6 Launch!

We’ve published our latest measurements of World IPv6 Launch network operators. We continue to see very encouraging growth in measured deployment across hundreds of networks both large and small.

This month I’ll highlight some of the networks new to our list that illustrate the global nature of IPv6 deployment taking place:

  • Telekom Malaysia, one of Asia’s leading communications companies
  • Get AS, Norway’s second largest cable operator
  • Corporacion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones, the public telecommunications company in Ecuador
  • Sunrise AG, the 2nd largest telecommunications company in Switzerland

These are all networks new to our measurements and showing growing and significant levels of IPv6 deployment. Don’t forget – if you’re turning up IPv6 on your network please register and be counted!

We expect to continue measuring IPv6 Launch network operators throughout 2014.
