spurring transition to ipv6 -- make it faster
We've had one presentation on the "unfairness" of p2p traffic, which (the presenter says) will eventually swamp us.
Then just now, we had the presentation & subsequent discussion re: ipv6 adoption.
Just wondering: what if we gave ipv6 traffic "mucho priority" over ipv4 traffic, then tell our user communities that ipv6 provides a better quality network experience, including (hopefully) faster page loads, & lower video game pings?
With such policies in place, folks wouldn't want to stay with the "old, slow" v4 traffic...and could be a significant selling point.
After all, if most p2p traffic is v4, prioritizing ipv6 (as a general concept) should improve the user experience.
Anyway, was just an idea, please pardon me if this has been discussed before, or sounds nutty...
