IPv6 Task Force Metrics Report

IPv6 Task Force Metrics Report

The New Zealand IPv6 Task Force has today released its latest metrics report,
highlighting aspects of New Zealand's IPv6 landscape.

The report is available at the following link:

Among the highlights:
• New Zealand’s service providers show a strong level of readiness: almost one third of peerings to the rest of the world and each other use IPv6; there is a choice for all sizes of businesses and organisations for their IPv6-capable ISP.
• 4 of the top 5 sites visited by New Zealanders are available over IPv6, with the 5th, Trade Me, working towards IPv6 deployment later in 2012.
• Government (4%) and ISPs (17%) lead the way in NZ making themselves visible on the IPv6-Internet, but our health, banking and education sectors are lagging.
• NZ’s actual levels of IPv6 traffic show middling performance, at c. 02% of total traffic. This is ahead of many, on par with economies like Australia, but behind leaders like Japan (1.5%) and France (4.5%).
• Wider purchasing and implementation of IPv6 ISP services and capable CPE (customer premise equipment) are now the largest hurdle to greater IPv6 adoption: the uptake of new UFB-based services provide the opportunity for New Zealand to progress.
