Is there a plan for new web address system?

Dear Sir,

With the explosion of devices connected to the internet, a new addressing system called IPv6 is being deployed worldwide to replace the old IPv4 system, which is running out of addresses.

Internet service providers worldwide are moving to the IPv6 system, allowing improved accessibility and performance of their users' online presence.

However, in Bermuda, we hear very little about any preparations for, never mind implementation of, IPv6.

Surely the telecoms overseer, the Regulatory Authority of Bermuda, should play a role in our national strategy for IPv6 adoption?

Surely Bermuda should have a public plan to offer IPv6 addressing for our national ccTLD?

What's going on?


Improving performance: Internet service providers are moving to a new system
