BT has started trials of the next version of the net's addressing scheme known as IP version 6. The global addressing system needs to be updated because the older scheme, IPv4, is running out of space.

The small-scale trial involves BT staff being switched to a network that runs only on IPv6 technology.
News about the test leaked because the technical changes made to BT's network for the trial accidentally included some customers' connections.
A small number of customers who use BT's Infinity fibre optic service spotted that they had been given an IPv6 address rather than one for IPv4, reported ISP Review.

Three cheers for BT  8) 8) 8)

memorizing ipv4 addresses can be a nightmare... there will be hair pulling to find 'that machine again' in ipv6...

"Suddenly" is not a word I think we are going to see just yet given the major time lag in even reaching this stage, expect more foot dragging and procrastinating about costs etc  :yes:
