It was a great year for the goat! 2016 marked the 50th anniversary for the Christmas Goat and there was a grand opening ceremony along with music and fireworks. But only a few hours after the opening, a pyromaniac set the goat on fire.
The only track the police have is a cap below that they hope to find DNA in and a crappy picture of the pyromaniac's back.
Municipality of Gavle decided not to rebuild the Goat but there have been a little brother of it nearly in the same spot for many years. They moved that goat to the original place. But after a few days a car ran into the smaller Goat and overturned it. But shame on those who give up — so today the smaller goat is in place and upright!
For the first time with my IPv6 measurements of the goat, I will publish the result before it's disabled by fire or dismantled (see live feed).
This year it was 27% native IPv6 unique visitors! But as usual there are very little action from Sweden.
Values from previous measurements:
In Sweden we have almost doubled the IPv6 usage every year for three years now. From 1.2% 2014 to over 4% 2016. Is 4% good or bad? Very bad! Shame on you every major ISP in Sweden! :)
World wide Google also shows a clear increase so we can't neglect IPv6 any more.
Have a happy and good IPv6 year during 2017!
