Join the Launch

We encourage everyone who would like to show support for the global deployment of IPv6 to download and use the World IPv6 Launch badges.

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that are permanently deploying IPv6 are encouraged to register as World IPv6 Launch participants. Participating access networks around the world have enabled IPv6 by default for new subscribers and enough of their existing subscriber base so that 1% of the subscribers on their networks now use IPv6 to reach IPv6-enabled websites. “Enabled by default” means the service will not require any IPv6-specific configuration by an end-user in order for the ISP to be able to provide IPv6 Internet service to the home network (in addition to existing IPv4 service).

If you plan to do the same on your network please join the list of participating networks by using the form below to register.

Network Operators

Access networks around the world are enabling IPv6 by default for new subscribers by 6 June 2012. These operators are also enabling enough of their existing subscriber base so that 1% of the subscribers on their networks will be using IPv6 when they visit websites that have enabled IPv6. “Enabled by default” means the service will not require any IPv6-specific configuration by an end-user in order for the ISP to be able to provide IPv6 Internet service to the home network (in addition to existing IPv4 service).

If you plan to do the same on your network please join the list of participating networks. Note, that we are continuing to accept registrations for network operators through 7 December.

Facebook, Google, and Yahoo! plan to continue to measure IPv6 at ISPs. These websites will measure IPv6 visits to their websites on the 2nd Wednesday of August, September, October, November, and December, and will will report the results of these measurements on the measurements page.

Registration Form - Network Operators

Facebook, Google, Microsoft Bing and Yahoo plan to do measurements during the week after 6 June to report the % of visitors from participating networks using IPv6 to visit their websites. They will use the AS # of participating networks to assess this.
