Here we are… 00:00 UTC on June 6, 2012. The beginning of a “new normal” for the global Internet where IPv6 is permanently enabled on over 3,000 registered websites and many, many more out there. Over 60 network operators / ISPs have committed to enabling IPv6 for their customers… and leading home router vendors have committed to enabling IPv6 by default for all their new products.
This is it… no more test flight… this time it is for real!
The Internet as we know it is changing fundamentally and for the better, launching a new era of innovation and communication that is no longer shackled by the legacy limitations of IPv4.
Over the next 24 hours, we’ll be streaming news and information out of the World IPv6 Launch Twitter account, and the website is steadily rolling out videos from Launch participants and Internet Society Chapters over the next 24 hours. Stay tuned for more…
… and welcome to the new Internet!
