IPv6 now faster than IPv4 when visiting 20% of top websites – and just as fast for the rest


Re: Time to learn

"Just make sure that you configure your IPv6 firewall correctly (on each device) as there is no need for NAT now. The good tutorials cover this off."

I thought one of the advantages of IPv6 was that it made NAT actually useful? I.e. you have your internal network on a private /64 subnet then NAT bidirectionally to your external /64 subnet. This means changing IP is easy but you can still get the advantages of uniquely addressable machines.
