BT Confirms IPv6 Will Be Enabled on Their Network as Early as Fall

BT, United Kingdon's ISP, has confirmed IPv6 will finally be enabled on their network from this Autumn 2016 – but it will be early 2017 before all of their customers can use it. Mark Jackson reported today in ISPreview.co.uk: "BT's move to adopt IPv6 is thus a significant development, although it should be noted that Sky Broadband has already made it available to millions of their subscribers (around 80% at the last check). The onus is now on Virgin Media and a fair few other ISPs to pick up the pace."

— Jackson: "A year ago BT revealed that they intended to make the 'new' Internet addressing standard available to 50% of their national network in the United Kingdom by April 2016 and then 100% by December 2016 (here), with the work getting a 'gentle start' at the end of last year. Except that was perhaps a little optimistic."
