My System Specs

Default IPV6

With the current kerfuffarl over bandwidth usage and overage charges I came across another concern that I was not aware of. That being IP adresses are running scarse in Canada. The U.S. and other countries are performing tests to impliment a new IP adress system IPV6. The old proticol IPV4 is running out of numbers or addresses to accomadate all the new pc's, smartphones etc coming on line. From what I heard Canada or it's internet providers hasn't even started the first faze of testing for the new protical.
From the news report I heard probably around mid-summer no more adresses will be available for new smartphones, pc's unless the new IP system is implimented.
Did I hear wrong or is this a much greater issue than the bandwidth contriversy??
