The US is now out of IPV4 addresses.  Does Verizon have a date for supporting IPV6?

They support it now, but do not generally use it for FIOS or HSI.  Verizon Wireless is using it for the majority of their phones that use IP (smartphones etc.)with 68.73%.  #14 IN JUNE and ahead of all the other major ISP and Phone companies in the US.  see http://www.worldipv6launch.org/measurements/

 

They have been refusing to update information on when the rollout to other customers will occur, having last made public announcements back in 2013.  Back then they said they were going to start rollout in third quarter.  Since then many of the FIOS routers were upgraded to software that COULD support IPV6,  but never went any further as far as most of us can tell.

I won't lie, when I saw the subject my response was just HAHAHAHAHA. It's sad but Verizon has tons of available IPV4 for DSL/FIOS and with a monopoloy on infrastructure they have no incentive to offer this to customers.

For what its worth they have updated their page about IPv6 (The first update since 2013)

https://www.verizon.com/support/consumer/consumer-education/ipv6

 

Maybe they are finally about to make it available in some area.

 

I just hope that includes the soon to be Frontier area and that Frontier will support IPV6.  As far as I can find Frontier is even further than Verizon from offering it in their current areas.

I really do hope Verizon does start to offer IPv6 access to residential customers...

 

As much as I hate them, I have to give it to Time Warner Cable and Comcast for having IPv6 on their networks, can't say the same with Verizon.

 

At the moment I'm using a pretty solid IPv6 tunnel from Hurricane Electric, although I would much rather prefer native IPv6 from Verizon.
