UK IPv6 on the map, mobile performance better with IPv6

We’ve just published our latest IPv6 Launch network operator measurement results update. IPv6 deployment continues to make huge gains around the globe. Some highlights worth noting:

British Sky Broadcasting (AS5607) IPv6 deployment is proceeding rapidly.

In the US, Cox Communications (AS22773) IPv6 deployment is also ramping up fast.

One of our measurement sources, LinkedIn, recently wrote about their IPv6 deployment experience and noted that, “IPv6 is performing better than IPv4 for mobile networks.”

If you’re a network operator deploying IPv6 and would like to join Sky, Cox and the other networks that make up the ranks of World IPv6 Launch participants, please register your network for measurement.

AT&T break through 50% IPv6, Saudi Arabia join top 20 IPv6 nations

Well that didn’t take long. As we predicted last month, “it won’t be long before IPv6 will be the dominant protocol to major web properties from AT&T’s network.” And as our latest World IPv6 Launch network operator measurement results show, that is now the case with AT&T ranked in 1st position with IPv6 deployment of 52.13%.

Something we couldn’t have predicted was the arrival of Saudi Arabia on the IPv6 stage. Now in 18th position with an IPv6 deployment measure of 7.07%, Saudi Telecom Company clearly mean business. There’s more information about this deployment in a recent lightning talk from Sander Steffann.

Other new entrants this month include MEO who have been building IPv6 deployment in Portugal for some time and are now included in our rankings in 17th position with IPv6 deployment of 44.11%, GVT of Brazil in 23rd position (3.47%), Sprint Wireless of the USA in 40th position (1.6%) and Ziggo, the largest cable operator in the Netherlands, in 64th position (0.53%).

And don’t forget – if you’re turning up IPv6 on your network please register your AS number and be counted!

AT&T takes the IPv6 lead

New World IPv6 Launch network operator measurement results have just been published for the month of April, 2015.

Perhaps the most striking news this month is that after several years of steady and consistent growth in IPv6 deployment, AT&T now sit at the number 1 spot in our rankings of IPv6 deployments globally. This is a pretty significant achievement and it’s also worth noting that it won’t be long before IPv6 will be the dominant protocol to major web properties from AT&T’s network.

We also have a new entrant to highlight this month in the form of Bolivian telecoms cooperative Comteco who enter our listings this month with an IPv6 deployment measurement of 9.43%.

IPv6 Launch: AT&T Wireless gets on board

New World IPv6 Launch network operator measurement results have just been published for the month of March, 2015.

Keen observers will note some fairly large shifts in the IPv6 deployment percentages for some of the higher-ranked networks, and fewer networks overall than we have reported on recently. The reasons for this are down to some changes in the way we’re handling data from our measurement sources (Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and LinkedIn). In an effort to present a more accurate (or perhaps, less inaccurate) measurement, we’re excluding any data sources that look like outliers to our algorithm. Hopefully this will result in smoother tracking of IPv6 deployment over time, and a more accurate representation of levels of deployment activity currently underway.

Some new entrants in this month’s figures to call attention to:

AT&T Wireless at 0.93%
Deutsche Glasfaser at 41.94%
Premier Communications at 4.13%

STnet joins the IPv6 trailblazers

A little later than usual we’ve just uploaded our latest monthly measurement update.

A couple of things to highlight this month:

– Strong IPv6 deployment growth at T-Mobile USA continues and this month they crossed the 50% IPv6 barrier. A great achievement for a major wireless network.

Japanese ISP STnet have joined the ranks of World IPv6 Launch networks and show up in this month’s rankings with over 36% IPv6 deployment.

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.

Latest measurement results – IPv6 deployment continues to grow, new networks joining the launch

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

New this month, and in at number #19 in our default ranking is Telefonica Czech Republic with an IPv6 deployment measure of 12.89%. This is a network we hadn’t been measuring before. 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.

Last IPv6 measurements update for 2013

We’ve just published our last IPv6 network operator measurements update for 2013. IPv6 deployment is continuing to grow across the hundreds of networks that we’re measuring. In the last twelve months we’ve seen huge increases in IPv6 deployment percentages for some of the world’s largest networks. Here’s to even more rapid IPv6 deployment growth in 2014!
