Re: IPv6 End User Fee

If anyone's ISPs are overcharging them, I will be able to provide
service for no more than 1 cent per available routable IPv6 address in
any netblock from /64 on up.  We have a reasonable startup rate of a
/56 for the price of a /64 for the remainder of 2012, even!

enough money as is from modem/cable box rentals.

Anyone charging end users for IPv6 space yet? :p

Just wondering, with so many IPv6 resources in a single allocation it
would seem difficult to charge anything at all.

1. How are you making up loss of revenue on IPv4 assignments?
2. Are you charging anything?
3. Is the cost built into the service?
4. Do you assign IPv6 space to end user and charge admin fee?

Take care,


IPv6 users cost me less money (CGN resources), i wish i had a business
method for giving them discounts and meaningful incentives for using

Today, my retail mobile phones users can have 1 NAT'd IPv4 address or
2^64 public IPv6 addresses + NAT64 to reach IPv4 destinations.   Most
don't use the IPv6 address option yet :(

But the number of folks electing to use IPv6 is increasing with more
phones available (4 Androids now support HSPA+ IPv6) and more IPv6
