Likewise (I'm with the biggest/worst ISP in Australia). They really are
being stupid about it. The problem (running out of IPv4 IP addresses)
is not going to go way. The solution is IPv6, not NAT, nor 6to4
proxies. If they're waiting for something else, I don't see it
Oddly, when I first joined the NBN (the Networking Bloody Nightmare), I
did have IPv6. Then some time afterwards, they switched it off.
I had the issue
originally when I was on adsl, but nothing has changed
now that I have moved to cable. I don't have any access to NBN as my
local exchange has yet to be upgraded to support NBN and there has not
been any information coming from NBN Co on what timeframe its likely to
happen in (the original projection was it would happen 18 months ago),
plus the cable plan I am on is cheaper than the equivalent performance
NBN plans the ISP offers.
I agree with you that the running out of IPv4 addresses is only going to
get worse and not better, but what I don't like is the potential for us
to suffer if they keep burying their heads in the sand.
