RIPE, the European IP registry, does regular measurements on the “IPv6 ripeness” of all the Local Internet Registries in Europe. A LIR is typically an Internet Service Provider or a large company that acts as their own Internet provider, maybe to get multihoming solutions for their services.
In Sweden, Ripe shows that 52% of the 255 LIRs have no IPv6 assignment. We’re not the worst country, but not in front either. The EU plan was originally that everyone should have IPv6 access now, but these statistics shows that we’re far away. Daniel Karrenberg writes more about RIPE’s IPv6 Ripeness statistics in an article published on CircleID.
Time to put pressure on your local ISP to get IPv6 – Now!
