As yourself, as an ISP if you can afford not to be testing IPv6 today. I don't think it's ready for deployment on any wide scale, due to a number of factors. However, I do believe it will happen, and sooner rather then later, due to the demand for addresses. ISP's should not be offering it as a service yet, or charging extra for it, but they better be working on figuring out how it works, so when the day comes they can convert quickly. -- Leo Bicknell - [email protected] Systems Engineer - Internetworking Engineer - CCIE 3440 Read TMBG List - [email protected], www.tmbg.org
