IPv4 Is Going, Going, GONE

Posted October 1, 2015 by Webpass

Earlier this week ARIN announced that they ran out of IPv4 addresses. As the number of devices connecting to the Internet continues to increase the number of available IPv4 addresses has depleted. Although IPv4 addresses began running out nearly five years ago, the general population ignored adopting IPv6. At Webpass, we started deploying IPv6 addresses in July 2014 as we always strive to be ahead of the curve so there is no disruption to our customers. With IPv4 exhausted it’s important customers start using IPv6 before Network Address Translation services change the user experience. IPv6 is sustainable, supports network growth and is now being adopted by over 20% of the U.S.
