+ - Major french ISP enables native IPv6

Submitted by varcher75
varcher75 (800974) writes "French "low-cost" ISP Free threw a challenge in 2005: "If there's 10,000 subscribers ready to pay 1 euro for this IPV6 'gadget', I'll do it". Before long, there were far more than 10 thousand geeks ready to throw their money down the pot, but no more was heard on the subject for a while. However, earlier last month, registration of an IPv6 prefix appeared for Proxad, the holding controlling the ISP operation.

Today, Free launched officially its native IPv6 support in a press announce. While professional-oriented ISP Nerim offered native IPv6 in France much earlier, this is one of the first large consumer-oriented ISP to start the switchover process to the next generation of Internet Protocol.

The announce appear to be a bit premature, as the mentioned IPv6 switch doesn't appear yet on the management console, but it shouldn't be long before french geeks can start typing their favorite IPv6 blog address 2001:6f8:37a:1::1 by hand..."
