comment What IPv6 CPE is available?
Just to let people know, I was upgraded to FTTC at home, which comes with a VDSL modem from BT OpenReach here. I have a Draytek Vigor 2130n and IPv6 is working on that really well. I still don't have my PI /48 at work, so that will happen eventually, I hope!

comment Switching to IPv6 implies dropping NAT. Is that a good thing?
@Kumba Fair 'nough. But on a small network, you can just renumber everything anyway. Or set your machines to use autoconf and use MAC-generated IP addresses and then you know what address each one will get, which is lieke a static.

@Kumba I think it's the scars from when you try to merge two large IPv4 private networks in 10/8 and you have to renumber one (or even both) of them that they're trying to avoid.

comment Do you think NAT is largely responsible for the delay in IPv6 adoption?
If every home needed a /28 or so to support all the devices, then we would have run out of IPv4 addresses a long time ago, so in that sense NAT defintely delayed IPv6. My business would need a /21 if there was no NAT. Some of the really big ISPs would need a /7 or even a /6
