Tenth of Internode’s customers on IPv6

ISP reports 400 per cent growth twelve months after launch

Internet service provider (ISP), Internode, has revealed 10 per cent of its national customer base now actively accesses the Internet via Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).

Since World IPv6 launch on June 6, 2012, the adoption of the protocol by Internode customers has increased by 400 per cent.

The company said it has IPv6-enabled all new customer connections since January last year, and all customer access routers sold by the ISP are also enabled.

According to Internode chief technology officer (CTO), John Lindsay, the results demonstrate that IPv6 deployment is possible without inconveniencing customers.

He also said the company is proud its leadership in deploying the protocol has encouraged other Australian and international ISP’s to follow.

Last year Internode received an Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) Internet Award (ANZIA) for its work in delivering the service in Australia.
