Someone for Verizon finally posted something.
So looks like something will happen beginning in the the 3q.
Looks like they will not be supporting routers before Actiontec rev E's however.
That's a bummer. Rev. Ds can do IPV6 if they'd add the function in. Maybe it's a concern over RAM since that does require some more RAM? I suppose a bit of optimization for the older routers would help, but yet again Rev. D is starting to get dated. I guess if IPv6 was wanted on a Rev. D, C, or A router third party firmware could be installed.
I hope the connectivity is done the right way in a Native format. Tunnels work, but there's a lot of overhead to them and do not play nice with applications at times.
security is a pita for IPv6 ....there are drawbacks to IPv6 as well as benefits
here is a good summary
Thanks for the good information.
This is what bothers me. When will Verizon start sharing the IPv4 with NAT on their end. I am, and have been PPPoE with a Private Class A subnet for a default gateway. So it would not be hard for them to add just a few more extra hops before the internet. They do it now with their routers and public IPv4 addresses. AOL in the early 90s? How many licks does it take to get to the real internet?
they are getting ready, Some people have noticed that their routers have already gotten a firmware push for ipv6 in some area's.
That is a business class FiOS router, so maybe business will get it first?
#1 They are starting with DHCP (dynamic) Addresses but for Business(es) ?
#2 Why Businesses first ?
#3 Why customers with DHCP (dynamic) ?

They might be starting with Businesses first as they presume they are a bit more prepared to use it (running larger, beefier routers than an ActionTec). As for customers with DHCP only? It's quite possible they are still working out the kinks of giving folks a static block of v6 for their location to use. It could also be due to their older PPPoE setups still being a work in progress.
It's hard to say what Verizon will do until they actually start giving out v6 addresses and put up an FAQ for it.
