Re: What should have happened with IPv6

You still need some kind of agreement for an interconnect and it would have been no problem with requiring telcos (the majority of the ISPs) to provide IPv6 for the interconnects. They could stay IPv4 internally, though probably wouldn't want to unless they have loads of customers on very old kit that they have no control over.

Germany had a sort of plan, which probably explains why it's take up (according to Google) is at nearly 45% compared with < 25% in the UK, well behind even India.
