Verizon Wireless Approaching 50% IPv6 In Latest World IPv6 Launch Measurements

The latest World IPv6 Launch measurements of network operators were published yesterday and among the charts available for the top 10 networks was this great one showing Verizon Wireless’ network as almost hitting 50% IPv6 deployment:

Verizon Wireless IPv6 deployment

The actual measurement this month was 48.71% but on that growth path I expect we should see it climb over the 50% mark by next month.

As we have written about in the past, and as mentioned on the bottom of the World IPv6 Launch measurements page, the measurements are for the % of IPv6 deployment that is seen from each registered network by the four companies participating in the measurements program:  Google, Facebook, Yahoo! and Akamai. The different methodologies used by the four companies are explained at the bottom of that World IPv6 Launch page.

Very cool to see this amount of IPv6 deployment happening within a mobile network.  How about you?  Are you ready for IPv6?  If not, you may want to start with our IPv6 resources and please do let us know how we can help you!
