This means that all NZ consumers can watch the high rate streams if
they want to, regardless of whether their ISP peers or not.
Non-peering ISPs may see a big increase in international bandwidth

We will be providing live streams of the ASB Classic and Heineken Open
tennis from Jan 2 - Jan 14
To ensure all New Zealanders get the best possible service we strongly
recommend peering with the R2/Citylink anycast cluster at 18.104.22.168
via WIX, APE and/or PNIX.
As it is the holidays we're not exctly sure how many people will be
watching coverage online, so this is just a heads up.

The studio cams for the Matinee Idle radio show are now in operation
with a jpg slide:
I have noted on the web cam page that some customers may not be able to
get the high bandwidth streams due to their ISP not peering.
These consumers will get a message suggesting that they use one of the
lower rate streams or contact their ISP.

To offer it on UBS, wouldn't your DSL router have to support IPv6? Do
any of them?
I suppose you could use either a plain modem, or one of those ones that
bridges PPPoA to PPPoE, but I've never tried setting one up.

We expect a huge turn out from the region at this SANOG meeting owing to
the popularity at previous meets. We also welcome participants from West
Asia, with our established collaboration with the RIPE NCC. With more
involvement of APNIC in the content of overall program, We hope you
would be able to make it to this meeting.
The meeting is open to everyone from the operational community, and thus
anyone who wants to find out more about Internet operations in South
Asia is welcome.
You can register for SANOG by sending in the form available at

Registrations from inside India can be paid by DD
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Not being from a service provider my view is somewhat simplistic.
Telecom offers a layer 2 service called UBS, which uses L2TP between their
RAN and the ISP. Over this PPP runs. So I don't see any reason why an ISP
couldn't offer IPv6 over UBS.
> Pretty much every Cisco DSL router supports IPv6. We just need an ISP

The last I knew (which was admittedly many years ago) Telecom's wholesale
DSL was a layer-3 service, with frames being routed through a twisty maze of
RFC1918-numbered routers before they arrived at the user's ISP. If that was
still the case, then surely Telecom would need to route v6 frames between
the customer and the ISP for the customer to receive native v6 service?
If there has been a subsequent layer-2 wholesale DSL service offered, along
the lines that is done elsewhere, is there not still a requirement for
Telecom to switch v6 frames from PPPoA into L2TP, or whatever framing is
used to present a user's traffic to an ISP?
Telecom told me that are playing with it, at best, and had no plans to
offer it commercially. Didn't bother trying Xtra. I tried to speak to
TelstraClear about it, but couldn't really find the right people to
understand what I was asking.

Are you able to share who you tried to purchase one off?
There seem to be three NZ providers advertising v6 prefixes at the
With the introduction of UBS I'm hoping that it's going to become a lot
more common for ISPs to be able to offer IPv4/IPv6 circuits, even if it
is only on ad Ad-Hoc basis to the 'geeks' to start with.
