By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

Some great news for IPv6 advocates in the latest August 2015 World IPv6 Launch measurements. As our colleague Mat Ford writes, Swisscom doubled their deployment over the past few months to near 40%!

It continues to be fun to watch this trend line grow up and to the right!

Many more statistics are available at the World IPv6 Launch measurements page. As Mat notes, Telekom Malaysia entered the top ten networks based on the methodology used (see the bottom of the page to learn more).  Congrats to the folks there in Malaysia for making this happen!
