Nanog76: IPv4 prisoner

Video will be up in a week, I’m sure.

Summary:
ISPs are motivated to promote IPv6 to avoid CGN.

Content providers are motivated to promote IPv6 because it’s faster, and faster means (they say) they increase user engagement/sales/ad views.

So e-commerce sites should dual-stack and only sell IPv6 capable equipment. Maybe ISPs can test it for them.

If everyone works together, everyone can make more money. Complementary blog post with more detail at www.retevia.net/prisoner
