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


Re: We didn't run out of ipv4

> Note that several years ago, France Telecom got assigned a /19 block of IPv6 addresses. That is 1/65,536 of the *total* unicast IPv6 address space (the first three bits are fixed at 001).

That is only the currently delegated by IANA 2000::/3 prefix.

There's nothing to stop 4000::/3, 6000::/3 being delegated in future.

I will admit that France Telecom should not have been assigned a prefix as large as a /19. That is ridiculously big.
