With the depletion of IPv4 addresses meaning the conversion to IPv6 is becoming vital, Leo Vegoda writes on the ICANN blog where IPv6 deployment most evident.
Surprisingly AfriNIC, the Regional Internet Registry for Africa and parts of the Indian Ocean, has a higher proportion of networks in its region announcing IPv6 addresses than the others. However there is a smaller base to start from in Africa.
North America has the lowest number of IPv6 addresses with less than one in ten (9%) addresses with Europe second worst at 14 per cent. Africa has 22 per cent of its addresses being IPv6 while the Asia Pacific has 14 per cent. Latin America has eleven per cent.
