Tue Mar 3 10:54:45 EST 2020
South Australia is now 100% Ipv6 Single-Stack for telstra.wap devices on
The scope of this change will impact devices that are using the latest
version of the operating system, either out of the box or through an OS
It will also impact Android devices which are configured for Telstra.wap
and manually configured for dual-stack.
Thank you to the AusNOG community for the feedback and valuable testing so
We now have a timeframe for the rollout to the rest of the county which
will move Telstra.wap to Ipv6 only.
Prepaid completed on 19th Feb
Post-paid completed on 25th of Feb and completed 2/3rd of March.
Telstra will then do network monitoring and undertake customer feedback.
WA - Post-paid planned for night of 10/11th of March
QLD - Post-paid planned for night of 12/13th of March
VIC - Post-paid planned for night of 17/18th of March
NSW+ACT - Post-paid planned for night of 19/20th of March
Remaining Pre-paid states (NSW,QLD,WA,VIC) planned for night of 24/25th
5G nodes not planned yet.
While we are making every effort to stick to these dates, they may be
subject to change.
