Re: Ipv6 status

Hello

Virginmedia tend to release press releases a few days before any major changes happen, keep an eye out at https://www.virginmedia.com/corporate/media-centre/press-releases any updates are all classed as company confidential until these press release.

Re: Ipv6 status

I have looked at them and contributed to thembbut still no response from virgin media. Sounds like something their customers actually want if there are so many posts.

Re: Ipv6 status

A rep will respond (with the same response as last time) in about 10 days.

Stop bumping posts.

Re: Ipv6 status

Anyone that has had to call virgin support knows 10 days is pretty fast for them. At least i don't have to listen to coldplay for the whole time here.

Re: Ipv6 status

Sounds like something their customers actually want if there are so many posts.” Yes IP6 would be very nice, but I believe the vast majority of their customers a) have no idea what IP6 is & b) have no present need for it. It will arrive when VM deems it to be cost justifiable.

Re: Ipv6 status

To give you an idea of a present need for ipv6 I'm currently migrating a server room in our office to a data center. We are struggling to get more than 4 ipv4 addresses assigned to us as you might have heard about we have run out of them. Ipv6 on the other hand we got assigned a few billion of them for a tenner month.

 They are not much use to us if the home users which a fair share have virgin at home can't access them as they don't provide ipv6 addresses. Sky and BT already provide them just virgin the last bug provider that doesn't.
