    One can have all kinds of thoughts about the Chinese, but when they get going, they get going.

    I wondered what took them so long though. They were the first to run out of IPv4 adresses. I would expected something like this five years ago.


    Cheers, Michiel

    It will be interesting to follow if they can stick to the deadlines they have set for themselfs...

    Yes, it will be interesting to watch. Especially the 2030 deadline of "IPv6 only InyetNet". It will depend on how one defines when that goal is reached. Defiing it as when all devices connected to the Internet no longer support IPv4 is unrealistic. It will take VERY much longer than nine years for all traces of IPv4 to be gone. I'd say that when less that 1% of ISPs still offer a public IPv44 address to their customers that goal is reached.


    Cheers, Michiel
