Deathstar to give you an idea what supports ipv6, nearly all of EE 's traffic is ipv6, and the majority of sky's traffic as of 2 years ago was ipv6 never mind now.

Mainstream services such as facebook, netflix and youtube have utilised ipv6 for years now. They dont require ipv6 but will utilise it if its on your connection.

The backward way of thinking is that one shouldnt bother with ipv6 until services they use require it.

BT and sky, 2 of the biggest UK isp's have rolled out ipv6 to millions of customers, so one could say it is now commonplace in the UK.

@Deathstar

Do you have a 4G phone? If you do it is very likely that you are already an IPv6 user!

You could check that by seeing if you can access https://loopsofzen.uk/

Three isn't IPv6.

No IPV6 on O2 for me anyway.

Looks like it could be the next progression for me, but I need an ISP change then.

I don't think Vodafone supports IPv6 either. At least until a few months ago. I'm now with EE and can confirm I have IPv6.

You can run a very cheap website by purchasing an IPv6-only VPS and putting it behind Cloudflare, which will make it reachable on v4 and v6.
