Companies like SNAP have now gone and switched off their v6 stack from non trivial issues. So we should really ask them why they turned it off. As that would really point to why the uptake has been so low.


Interesting.  I wonder if they would take the same approach if something was wrong with their IPv4 network?  In this particular case, SNAP re-enabled IPv6 over a month ago, so your information is out of date.

For the vast majority of broadband customers they just want to plug the modem in and it work. How is v6 going to have any impact on what they do?


If it has any impact at all, then you're doing something wrong!

100% of Comcast customer in the US (me included) have IPv6-enabled services. That doesn't mean 100% of customers are using IPv6 as they may not have the required modem/router/etc for it, but a far from trivial percentage of them are running IPv6 without issue, and even 6 months ago they were moving over 1Tb/sec of native IPv6 traffic.

Personally for me, it WAS as simple as just plugging in my modem, and I had IPv6.  (I was upgrading from a DOCSIS 2.0 modem which didn't support IPv6 to a DOCSIS 3.0 that does).
