An increasing number of your competitors provide native IPv6 transit on their residential boradband plans. Whilst tunnel mechanisms exist to use IPv6 over IPv4, this requires a relationship with a second ISP and the customer's own specialised equipment.

 

I'd like TalkTalk to natively provide an IPv6 service on residential lines, ideally with a static block allocation. It is becoming a feature that customers not only expect from their service, but also need to access the vast portion of the IPv6 Internet.

 

A number of TalkTalk's existing customers have asked for this in the forums over the last 7 years, but I hadn't seen an "Idea" raised to track it yet.

I just signed up for TalkTalk and am seriously considering leaving before my line is even activated due to the lack of IPv6. Zen Internet enabled IPv6 in December 2015! I had thought this was standard everywhere by now; it's incomprehensible that this hasn't happened yet in 2021.

...especially as talk-talk already has ipv6 connectivity itself! https://bgp.he.net/AS13285#_asinfo

I agree. I've recently signed up to TalkTalk and just assumed they'd have IPv6 support. My fault for making the assumption I guess but ridiculous they don't.

Yup, I’ve put the TalkTalk ‘super router’ back in the box, I’m using my Zen FritzBox, let’s me chose what channels each device uses, channel width, power output, has a media server and USB port for hard drive, DECT phone server with answer machine thst has its own number to route via a SIP provider, internal VPN,  and most importantly ip4 to ip6 to get around the lack of ip6 (the future of the internet) service from TalkTalk... oh and I’m getting 315Mbps down and 47Mbps up from a cable and 290Mbps CIA wireless. When I tried the ‘award winning’ TalkTalk router I got 275 up on cat5 and 200Mbps over WiFi. It does look good though. Shame it’s gathering dust in the loft. Definitely not the sort of router that someone who wants a G-Fast 350Mbps connection would use.
