Comcast recently shared some long awaited news regarding IPv6 support for our Commercial Services. We will soon begin trials for Comcast Business Internet and IPv6 as such we would like to share some important details about these trials. First, customers interested in participating in these trials should submit their information using our Commercial DOCSIS IPv6 Trial Request. Once submitted the Comcast IPv6 trial team will review each request and determine eligibility for the trial. Further, the trial will initially be conducted in areas across the Comcast footprint where the Arris C4 CMTS platform has been deployed since this is where we have been able to complete our launch of IPv6 capabilities to date.
Customers who are actively trialing our Comcast’s Metro-Ethernet (Dedicated Internet Access) are assigned a/48 sized allocation while our commercial DOCSIS product will offer a /56 delegated prefix by default and will eventually include support for both dynamic and stable allocations. Comcast Business Internet device support for IPv6 will initially include the SMC DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem and Router SMCD3G-CCR (SMCD3G-CCR) and the Netgear CG3000DCR DOCSIS 3.0 Commercial Cable Modem and Router (CG3000DCR), both which are provided by Comcast. We are also please to announce that IPv6 support for our Business Class web site will soon be enabled.
The news we are sharing today represents several significant milestones for Comcast as we continue advance our IPv6 transition. We certainly expect the expanded deployment of IPv6 across our footprint and services to increase the penetration and use of IPv6, which in turn should yield significant increases in IPv6 traffic across the Comcast network and Internet ecosystem.
We hope you are as excited as we are about this news!

We congratulate John Brzozowski from Comcast on his award today at the 85th meeting of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)! John received the Itojun Service Award, recognizing his outstanding contributions to the advancement of next-generation Internet Protocols though his tireless efforts in providing IPv6 connectivity to cable broadband users across North America and evangelizing the importance of IPv6 deployment globally.
This was the fourth annual Itojun Service Awards. First awarded in 2009, the Itojun Service Award honors the memory of Dr. Jun-ichiro "Itojun" Hagino, who passed away in 2007 at the age of 37. The award, established by the friends of Itojun and administered by the Internet Society, recognizes and commemorates the extraordinary dedication exercised by Itojun over the course of IPv6 development.

IPv6 has been launched on all Arris DOCSIS 3.0 C4 CMTSes, covering over 50% our network. We are targeting completion of the rest of the network by mid-2013. Our progress has led to nearly 2.5% of our Xfinity Internet customers actively using native dual stack. Additionally, IPv6 traffic has increased 375% since World IPv6 Day in June 2011. Following World IPv6 Launch in June 2012 Comcast also observed that approximately 6% of the 2012 Olympics served over YouTube to Comcast customers was over IPv6.

When Comcast decided to participate in World IPv6 Launch, we committed to enabling at least 1% of our customers with IPv6 by June 6, 2012. We are happy to report that we achieved this goal a few days ago, on May 24, 2012, and the number of customers enabled with IPv6 continues to grow every day! See the details on our blog.
