Re: Unintentional benefits


Congestion is not caused by using ipv4 or relieved by using IPv6, congestion is congestion. IPv6 is like driving a Tesla on the motorway/highway when everyone around you is in ice car. You can only get so far in a Tesla and have to go to special places to charge it whilst facilities for internal combustion engine cars are widespread and you can go anywhere the road goes. If your in your Tesla stuck in a jam with ice cars it’s the same experience as with IPv6 effectively the transport infrastructure is busy despite the mode/addressing scheme used for transport.
