IPv6 Now Dominant Protocol for Traffic Among Major US Mobile Providers

“Major Mobile US Networks Pass 50% IPv6 Threshold,” reports Mat Ford, Technology Program Manager at the Internet Society (ISOC). In an announcement published in the World IPv6 Launch website, Ford writes: “In our year-end blogpost in December of 2015 we highlighted the enormous progress that IPv6 deployment had made in 2015 by obtaining aggregated data from our sources for the four major US mobile providers (Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile USA, Sprint Wireless, AT&T Wireless) ... At that time, in aggregate, these providers were delivering 37.59% of their traffic over IPv6 to major IPv6-capable content providers. ... we just passed a major milestone. IPv6 is the dominant protocol for traffic from those mobile networks to major IPv6-capable content providers.”
