IPv6 in Numbers

IPv6 Preference by Month, APNIC Labs

Current data from APNIC Labs show IPv6 deployment in absolute terms is still quite low across several layers. However, looking at the past 18 months, there is strong growth. There is now adequate information available for your region, economy, and network to benchmark IPv6 readiness.

This is a graph from APNIC Labs end user IPv6 accessibility measurements, showing the global average. Visit APNIC Labs and click on the map to see available data for your economy.

World IPv6 Launch

World IPv6 Launch

Major ISPs, home networking equipment manufacturers, and content providers around the world have joined "World IPv6 Launch" effort since 2012. This site tracks different aspects of IPv6 deployment on the global Internet toanswer questions such as: which websites have enabled IPv6, how manyvisitors to a specific website are using IPv6, how many networks have significant IPv6 deployment, and how much traffic at an Internet exchange is using IPv6?
