[AusNOG] Less than 10% of IPv4 Addresses Remain Unallocated

Simple routers (ethernet to ethernet/wifi) are more available to do dual stack than ADSL ones. Let's face it. An ethernet to ethernet router is easier to build and doesn't require the kind of certification a DSL one does.
eg. latest Apple Airport (I mean the VERY latest) have PPP dual stack built in. We've got someone who's produced dualstack code for the WRT54G equivalents.
It's also likely that some or all of the NBN access will be IP rather than PPP (ISP dependent) so that'll be easier.

If only there were some new, national network being built that negates the need for current CPE so we could co-incide the release of ethernet-based CPE that supports IPv6 from the get-go.

How many connected last year...
4 x /8's issued to APNIC
4 x /8's issued to RIPE
I'm well aware that the majority of vocal people on this list are
supporters of ipv6, I just have an investigative mind, in other words,
I do think some here are hyping things up for their own agenda, just
like those did back in 90's.
I mean, talking about ripping off end users more money because they use
ipv4 like Skeeve brought up, pleaaseeeee, , you try to force everyone
onto ipv6, then there's going to plenty of spare ipv4 in APNIC's pool
isn't there, so no problem for the ISP's that wont rip them off :)
So apart from the noise makers on this list beating their chest about
it, is anyone actually in serious talks with CPE vendors, how about
retailers? find some cluey retailers and get them to push vendors as
well, after all, that's where this needs to start.
As someone else mentioned, the vast majority of end users don't care,
they will not sit down and google it, they will not read white papers or
RFC's about it, they have no desire to learn squat about it, all they
want is for the Internet to work, existing customers and in next few
years or so should easily be serviced by ipv4, it's the newbie from
nearing then, the ones who go out and buy brand new CPE because its
their first, or their existing one got blow to hell in a storm that
needs to be targeted towards ipv6 capable CPE.
