ipv6.comcast.net now has AAAA records and available via IPv6. Comcast has also started to organize their customer trials of IPv6. Hopefully, more details will be forthcoming, but it’s great to see this happening.
Ars Technica has a new posting that suggests that 1% of Internet traffic is IPv6. Read about it here.
The National Institute for Standards and Technology has released a draft for comments on deploying IPv6. An article is available from Government Computer News concerning this.
According to Network World, YouTube became available via IPv6 in late January. Unfortunately, it is unclear how to get access to this version of the service. There is no specific url published in that article that displays the YouTube home page and some quick DNS probes of the youtube.com domain do not turn up any AAAA records.
If you use IPv6 and YouTube and find the “majic” to reach it over IPv6, please comment on this posting.
John Jason Brzozowski from Comcast just posted an important note to NANOG concerning Comcast’s plans for IPv6. Since Comcast is the incumbent provider in Houston, Texas, it seemed relevant to bring that to the attention of the TXv6TF audience.
TXv6TF welcomes this activity and encourages the other cable providers that serve Texas to make known any initiatives they may have for 2010.
