IPv6 23 October 2014

T-Mobile USA Hits 43% IPv6, Verizon Wireless at 59%, AT&T at 25% in Oct 2014 Measurements

By Dan York Senior Manager, Content and Web Strategy

More great IPv6 news this month with the October 2014 World IPv6 Launch measurements.  As our colleague Mat Ford notes, T-Mobile USA entered the “top 10” networks this month and has grown from 5% to 43% IPv6 within the last 12 months!  Congrats to the whole team there at T-Mobile USA!

Verizon Wireless’ relentless increase continued, too, driven by their growth of their IPv6-based LTE network. They are now flirting with the 60% mark… so you can probably anticipate my headline next month!

Continuing the trend in North American networks, AT&T, too, saw a nice increase, coming in at 24.99% (so let’s call that 25%, eh?):

The growth in IPv6 was global, of course, and in the top networks Deutsche Telekom showed a nice growth line at 28.05%:

Mat Ford also noted in his post that SKTelecom, one of the largest South Korean mobile network operators, has just started an IPv6 rollout and so we should see their growth over the next while.

If you have IPv6 running on your network and would like to be measured as part of this program, please do register to join the program.

And if you haven’t started doing anything with IPv6 yet, please check out our Start Here page to find resources tailored for your type of organization or role.  As these charts show, IPv6 is happening!

UPDATE: For AT&T, I changed the introductory text from “North American mobile networks” to “North American networks” after Will Dean raised a question in the comments.   Looking at the AS numbers of the AT&T networks measured by the World IPv6 Launch measurements, it looks like they are probably all fixed line services offered by AT&T.
