In the forum that discusses issues etc pertaining to my cable IP
provider there is an interesting point raised.

It seems that to convert to IPv6 the software on their 'nodes' and their
CPE-facing equipment will need to be upgraded at a cost of around $6,000
per node for the licences..

What constitutes a node? It seems there are hundreds of them.

It also seems while they have IPv6 addresses they still have a surfeit
of IPv4 addresses :-)

Oh, and one other thing. Your registrar need to be able to handle IPv6
addresses. Check that out too.

Ah, nostalgia ain't what it used to be.
