Sunsetting SixXS: 2017-06-06

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

We are announcing our plan for the SixXS Sunset on 2017-06-06.

We have sent an e-mail to all active users and most IPv6 community mailinglists, describing our plans to sunset SixXS after 18 years of operation.

We have also announced this on our @tweetsix Twitter account and other social media. Please feel free to forward the announcement, or include it on your blog/news site. We want the information to be well spread.

By doing the Call Your ISP for IPv6 action for the last year and giving people another 10 weeks to migrate, we trust that we have provided people with enough time to Call their ISP and ask for native IPv6. Now is the time to act: now that IPv6 has been around for more than 20 years, we believe it is time for all Internet providers to be deploying IPv6 for their paying customers.

We offer our thoughts on deciding that on 2017-06-06 the sun sets for the last time for SixXS:

The sunset article contains the rationale, accomplishments, timeline and a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.

Kindest Regards,
Jeroen Massar & Pim van Pelt (SixXS founders)

Happy two-thousand--and-(ipv6+1)-teen!

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

SixXS wishes everybody a happy and fruitful 2017!

IPv6 is growing out of it's teeny years, and is already a European Adult (18+) and this year will be of drinking age even in the USA (21+, for most states)

SixXS will continue doing the Call-Your-ISP-For-IPv6 action through 2017.

If your ISP still does not have IPv6 in 2016, you really should consider changing ISP.

For more details about the Call-Your-ISP-For-IPv6 action, please read our News article about "Call Your ISP for IPv6!".

As in all other years, in case of questions, comments or problems don't hesitate to contact us.
