IPv6 or Internet protocol version 6 is a new from of addressing.  Basically every device that has an internet connection has an IP address.  Basically a number to identify it on the network so data knows where to go.  v6 replaces the current v4 because world wide as more and more countries and people get on the internet the number of address in version 4 are running out.  So they had to come up with a new addressing scheme to solve that problem.  For the most part you will never know the difference.  Only ones that are really using IPv6 are your internet service providers.  As far as businesses go or for in your house you will most likely still use version 4 for a long time.  For a more detailed description you can go here

Why are you worried about them having IPv6 addresses?

Knight -

Why does it matter why? I too would like to know just for the sake of knowing. Sooner or later there may be an instance where we will want to use it and it would be good to know if / when this will be in place with exede.

Yea I ran it from my wireless and got the same result that I don't have an ipv6 address then ran it from my cell phone and it came back that I have a IPv6 address and everything was green checks. So it appears Verizon is pushing out IPv6 address but ViaSat is not as of yet

I would like to know myself - and here is why...

While increasing the pool of addresses is one of the most often-talked about benefit of IPv6, there are other important technological changes in IPv6 that will improve the IP protocol:
- No more NAT (Network Address Translation)
- Auto-configuration
- No more private address collisions
- Better multicast routing
- Simpler header format
- Simplified, more efficient routing
- True quality of service (QoS), also called "flow labeling"
- Built-in authentication and privacy support
- Flexible options and extensions
- Easier administration (say good-bye to DHCP)

migration to IPv6 is underway but probably at least a year away.

thank you @Exede/Alex for your reply. I would think exede would have been working on this way before now...

Thanks for the update on this, I was curious myself about it since, as Thorneo mentioned, we officially ran out of IPv4 address in the US within the past week or so...
