    Want to know how to force a migration to ipv6?

    Announce Facebook and Google are going to team up and switch to v6 only in 1 year. Then do it. Null route their v4. One year and one week, and the transition will be complete.

      Or run a public NAT64 gateway alongside DNS64 if you are a Google/Cloudflare-scale company. I’m really confused why this is not a thing yet given that a free tier Cloudflare WARP already routes the traffic through their network, and both companies have public DNS64 servers.

      I believe that would significantly accelerate the v6-only transition. And for ISPs that do not provide native IPv6 connectivity, just use tunnel broker. E.g. afaik in Moscow there are a total of 2 large and 1 small ISP that lease IPv6 blocks or addresses to consumer networks, and only the later acknowledges that.

      At home, I’m running a NAT64 on my router (for other network devices, servers and NAS) and 464XLAT CLAT on Wi-Fi AP (one of these “other network devices”), and so far I’ve had a single obscure issue with this setup where the voice chat is not working in PUBG (a game I sometimes play with my friends).

        Edit: that is, both large ISP do not officially support IPv6 connectivity, and also one of them leases /64 blocks instead of /56 or /48.

      I agree that 44/8 is vastly underutilized, I myself maintain 2 /24’s from 44/8 here in the US and not even using a tenth of their capacity. 44 Net still provides a wonderful service to the ham radio community, and I learned more about BGP and other protocols than I would have ever been able to obtain on my own so there is a lot of value in it.

      The original founder has sadly passed away, but before his death the Amazon sale was completed so the project is well funded to survive in the future.
