@petrpastor: I'm not aware of any recent public announcement by Virgin Media regarding IPv6, but if you're interested, we've been tracking Virgin IPv6 activity for many years over in our little corner of the forum using APNIC's public statistics for Virgin's IPv6 prefix.  Here is the latest data:

https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/QuickStart-set-up-and/IPv6-support-on-Virgin-media/m-p/3851879#...

Of course you'll have to make your own interpretation of what the data actually means, until the day that VM makes an official announcement.  Regarding the size of IPv6 delegations, Virgin has said at UK IPv6 Council meetings that it will be /56, the same as its two rivals among the Big Three UK ISPs, ie. Sky and BT.

Enjoy. :-)

Re: :56 or at least :60 IPv6 pools when?

Many thanks for the link. It gives at least som insight about work on IPv6 implementation in the UK. Sad thing is that VM does not bother to report on the plans and progress of VM IPv6 implementation. RB  should ride friday off peek Virgin train second class from London to Manchester to experience what it realy menans to be - by his own words - very happy and satisfied customer.

RB doesn't have anything to do with Virgin Media apart from the fact that he makes money by allowing them to use the Virgin brand.  Virgin Media was a rebranding of NTL/Telewest after they bought Virgin Mobile UK from the Virgin Group.  It's not owned by Liberty Global.  It's never been owned by Virgin Group.

I think you mean “now owned by Liberty Global” a US conglomerate.

Oops - that was a typo - I did mean to say now owned by Liberty Global.  Good spot.
