Ipv6 2017 Check Update


In 2015, we ran a test on our most commonly used sites for IPv6 responses which yielded pathetic 8% results, so
this is a quick update to the article I wrote back then - IPv6 Reality Checks, but it seems here we are two and a half years later, only a handful of the previously IPv4 only hosts have managed to graduate to IPv6.

These hosts have since IPv6:

www.9news.com.au
bbc.co.uk
cnn.com
www.yourtv.com.au
mypolice.qld.gov.au
www.webhostingtalk.com
www.datacenterknowledge.com
techdirt.com
planefinder.net
comlaw.gov.au


However the following, the over whelming vast majority, still have yet to add IPv6 -

twitter.com
www.theguardian.com
www.abc.net.au
www.cbs.com
theplayer.platform.com
abc.com
www.tmr.qld.gov.au
www.foxtel.com.au

www.afl.com.au

So there ya go, many still to wake up, yet this is not really a surprise as most the ISP's still do not provide native IPv6, TPG certainly don't. I have removed bigpondmusic, since they ceased to exist.
The financial institutions I use I also retested, none of them have upgraded yet either.

My original thoughts it'll be 2020 before things are really IPv6, sure looks like coming true ;-)
