Roller Network has long been a proponent of native IPv6 since we first deployed it on our network in 2007 following some early testing back in 2005. We also require support for native IPv6 from anyone we buy transit from now or in the future. But IPv6 provisioning on new Roller Network customer accounts has been optional on request. We’ve decided it’s time to change that.
Since last week we’ve started provisioning an IPv6 /64 subnet (with its enclosing /48 reserved) on all new accounts. Soon we’ll be going through all existing accounts and assigning an IPv6 subnet to them, too. Whether or not customers will use their IPv6 is still up to them, but we hope this will encourage some to give IPv6 another look or start learning and testing IPv6 connectivity.
