IPv6 availability

Approximately a third of all internet traffic is now IPv6.

 

Almost all other ISPs have supported IPv6 for many years but TalkTalk is still behind.

 

When will IPv6 be available through TalkTalk?

Hi Stannaz, your post has been flagged for assistance and you should hear during tomorrow. I think we all would like to know the answer!

Every other post inquiring about IPv6 has the same response.

 

Do you get ignored by the engineers/higher ups or do you forget to update the posts?

 

Thanks

Hi Stannaz

 

Apologies for the delay.

 

TalkTalk is committed to transitioning to IPv6. To minimise any potential impact to our customers and services, the transition will be phased over the next few years as we roll-out new products and services such as fibre to the premises.

We continue to work closely with our network and systems vendors to ensure all new equipment is fully IPv6 compliant. In fact, our network already operates as dual stack, using IPV4 compliant addresses while the major network components are IPV6 ready.

Hi,

 

Although it seems TalkTalk will have a very stretched and delayed IPv6 deployment timeline in comparison to other ISPs, I appreciate the informative response.

 

Thank you.

Yeah (I got a canonical response via one of their resellers)

 

Talktalk have no plans whatsoever to offer it in the next 12 months (at least - more likely 2-3 years - the actual response I got was "ever").

 

If you were promised it as part of signing up then take it up with your local trading standards. If you're being strung along, take it up with Trading Standards

Ofcom and the ASA WILL NOT pursue lack of IPv6 as "not full internet" or misleading advertising claims and the various "consumer advocacy" sites such as thinkbroadband are not interested in taking up the cause, claiming it's too much effort.

Hi @Katieandmark could I suggest you start your own thread if you would like assistance?

According to Microsoft Xbox does not require ipv6 but does support it.

NO - and there are no official plans to make it available, despite the statements of staff in these fora.

whether xbox live requires it or not..the large benefits of ipv6 out weighs the excuse that it does not require it...for us that use xbox live and NEED!!! ipv6 for higher quality of gaming and experience is a paramount requirement and NEED!!
