Another North American cable operator showing consistent recent growth is Time Warner Cable and this month’s update has proved no exception.

Other networks are also showing continued strong growth in their IPv6 deployment numbers and we are now reporting on over 200 networks for the first time. Google also continuously measure the availability of IPv6 connectivity among Google users. They publish a graph that shows the percentage of users that access Google over IPv6. The Internet Society commented recently on the milestone of 2% deployment being passed. In the last 8 weeks, Google’s reported figure for IPv6 adoption has gone from 2% to 2.5%. These are all very welcome and positive indications that IPv6 deployment is continuing across the Internet.
