No they do not on Fios. They do on Verizon wireless.

its been over 6+ years that Fios said they were thinking about it. However it has not happened yet. When it will happen? Who knows.

Thank you for that. I needed a laugh.

your service and mine do not now, nor did Verizon say I was ever going to have it.

I agree that it is time for a revolt !

 

I live in the New York City area and I called the DOITT (who investigate any issue with the providers) and they sent me back to verizon support.

 

I am currently leading a revolt in the Democratic party of New York city running OutragedDems.NYC to replace the technically clueless politicians and then when I am done, with that I will get them to turn around against Verizon and force them into IPv6.

 

I got with a few cohorts to change the charter of New York City to get a Chief Privacy Officer and stuff like that so by the time I done in September, I will get back into Verizon behind to get them to put IPv6 on top of the list. I am tired to have to fiddle with my router just to see Netflix and HBOgo because of the HE bridge.

 

Revolt ! Revolt ! Revolt !

Like Stephen Colbert used to say, you are on Notice Verizon !

To much sugar in your breakfast cereal.

there is nothing in verizons service agreement that guarantees any technology updates. IPv6 being the assigned ip addresses scheme. But nice try.

 

in New York State the Department of Public Service controls verizon and other utilities.

they cannot make Verizon go to IPv6 and they handle valid complaints on service issues. Overcharging, non repairs to service, switching out services without consent, etc.

 

the rest of your post has nothing to do with asking for assistance from a customer helping customer forum.

 

call 1-800-VERIZON and ask them for assistance.

There's absolutely nothing wrong to ask for IPv6 because every other ISP has it by now... I would like to ask when it will happen for V-Fios as well but I know the answer to that... even if they're planning on providing it they won't tell us... so this post is pointless to an extent however we're allowed to vent our frustrations aren't we?

Incorrect. Most ISP’s do not have it now. And Fios is still one of them not having it.

when Verizon is ready to roll it out Verizon will do it.

Does Verizon pay you or something? Both Comcast and TWC have ipv6 for residential customers. Regardless it's the right thing to do technologically. There's really no excuse for them not having it except that they don't care, and it's not something thats defensible it's just objectively wrong.

Part of your statement is correct. It is available but not everywhere. See above links.

more not than have. And no I don’t work for Fios. 

As I stated when they are ready to let customers have it like they do on the wireless side the customers will get it.
