A further 4 /8's have been allocated in November it seems, so we are down to only 7 /8's left. I understand that when we get to 5 the RIRs get one last /8 each.
This could mean we are literally weeks from an empty IANA pool of IPv4s.

I am talking of IANA of course.ReplyDelete
But that is when people start changing policies and when the news starts...
That the news that makes it sound like the end of the world and advises people that they won't be able to put anymore devices on the internet, I mean, they are clueless, afterallReplyDelete
I'd rather the press made it sound like the end of the world - forcing the router manufacturers to finally start taking ipv6 seriously, than the current situation TBH.ReplyDelete
It's insane that, potentially less than a month from the IANA exhaustion, I can't walk into PC World and buy an ipv6 capable DSL router.
