Does Verizon offer IPv6 yet? I do not have it and its 2019 as of writing this.

My router is IPv6-enabled, but I do not have a /64 allocation.

I don't see the DSL service receiving IPv6 personally. Good chance FiOS will get it in the next year.

That is not 100% true that there is no IPv6 on Verizon Land Line.

and this time for real.

 


IPv6 Connection Type: DHCPv6-PD

But there is something to be aware of:

 

While I and others see that thread reporting that they are doing it for real on FIOS, it is not in all areas.

Why one Earth has this not been implemented network wide? Why is VERIZON one of the only major ISPs that do not support IPv6 internet?

Your support techs have no idea what IPv6 even is, like I'm speaking to them in a different language. The website says "check back for more info" for the last 7 months.

no updates.

no communication.

no published plans.

 

this is ridiculous!!!
