IPv6 deployment doesn’t have to be a gradual process, providing it has been well planned in advance. In last month’s results Swisscom had a deployment measure of 0.88%. Compare this month’s results that we’ve just published and you’ll see Swisscom now ranked in 8th position with measured IPv6 deployment of 14.88%. This increase isn’t an aberration either and is supported by other public measures of IPv6 deployment.
It’s great to see another major Internet provider like Swisscom joining the many industry leading organisations that are helping to deliver ‘the new normal’ for the Internet. For others still hesitating this is another indication that there’s really no impediment left to large-scale IPv6 deployment.
