I was wondering if anyone knew what the status is of IPv6 support? If not supported yet, if there is any sort of a timeline? I did a quick search but didn't find any recent information.

Welcome to this IPv6 Website

Test your IPv6 connectivity.  - Your DNS server (possibly run by your ISP) appears to have IPv6 Internet access.

It's supported at web site access level

Welcome to this IPv6 Website

In this cyber war-fare era, its best to not have a direct IPv6 address.  With IPv6 address, all of those larger e-sellers/intel will know all about your surfing/buying habits.  With IPv6 address, they know who you are.

With IPv4, if you trash those cookies/LSOs stored daily, and change your dynamic IP address from time to time, they don't know Jack Schmitt

Telstra claims success with IPv6 on mobile network


RE: good to know

Everything Viasat needs to know is found here via Internet Society (The Internet Society was founded in 1992 by a number of people involved with the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

6 June 2013 - Making Content Available Over IPv6

Hey, if they got the time to create their web browser, and if they claim "Viasat is the global communications company that believes everyone and everything in the world can be connected," well its about time to engage IPv6.

RE: "... if anyone knew what the status is of IPv6 support?"

Good read....worldwide status...and how implemented

28 Jun 2018 - Time to dump dual-stack networks and get on the IPv6 train – with LW4o6...Deutsche Telekom and others go with subscriber-focused lightweight approach

Trivial

18 Apr 2018 - OK, this time it's for real: The last available IPv4 address block has gone
Now for the last time, will you all please shift to IPv6?!
