Today, 3,000 websites have made themselves reachable over IPv6 in order to participate in World IPv6 Launch (http://www.worldipv6launch.org/). (Some have enabled IPv6 prior to today.) The 3,000 includes the top four in the Alexa Web (http://www.alexa.com/topsites) ranking: Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Yahoo. Other notable converters include Bing, AOL, Netflix, Comcast, AT&T, Microsoft, NASA, Sprint, the US Geological Survey, Sony Japan, and Porsche.

Last year, many websites also enabled IPv6, but turned the new version of the Internet Protocol off again after 24 hours. After that test flight, the Internet Society and other organizers now deem IPv6 permanently ready for prime time: "the future is forever."

Additionally, a number of Internet Service Providers, such as Comcast and Time Warner Cable, have started enabling IPv6 for their consumers. But unlike publishing an IPv6 address for a website in the Domain Name System, giving broadband customers IPv6 access isn't accomplished with one flick of a switch. This is an ongoing effort. Last but not least, three makers of home routers (Cisco/Linksys, D-Link, and ZyXEL) now have models with IPv6 enabled out of the box available, in order to hook up to the IPv6-ready service of the aforementioned ISPs.
