Can I get IPv6 services from Grain Connect?
Why was IPv6 developed?
IPv6 was developed to replace IPv4 due to the rapid expansion of the internet and the subsequent depletion of available IPv4 addresses.
Can I get IPv6?
Grain does not currently operate IPv6 for internet connectivity however the teams are working to get IPv6 capabilities implemented on our network, with on implementing this with the aim to start rolling this out to all customers by spring of 2022. Our IPv6 service will work in parallel with IPv4 and once enabled for IPv6 your services will seamlessly switch between using IPv6 and IPv4 depending on the service you are using. Once we get IPv6 addresses for our network, they will be public addresses and will not experience the same issues that can sometimes happen with IPv4 and NAT.
