Re: IPv6 at Optus

[ Edited ]

I’m with AussieBroadband now for fixed (was Optus cable). Still on Optus for mobile. AussieBroadband have IPv6 in beta, but works fine for me. See





What do you get?

A direct /128 out of a /64 range for your wan side of the connection.
A /56 which can be used for LAN side connections. This can be split up into /64 ranges via PD (Prefix Delegation), or manually configured by you.



I’m sure there are more providers with IPv6 too. I know Superloop also started beta recently. See


Internode were the first Aussie ISP with IPv6. Looks like they still provide it too. Not sure what subnetting they use


Re: IPv6 at Optus


I also went with AussieBroadband.  You do need to 'opt in' after being connected - Took all of 10 seconds to do from their support page.

Other providers include Foxtel's NBN ISP offering is dual-stack IPv6, and Exetel also has IPv6.  shows the latest measurements of IPv6 deployment, look for the entries >30%.

AussieBB is actually low in this report, possibly reported under a different ASN - as I can confirm its working well.

Aussie allocated a /56 for the LAN, different from the /64 used for the WAN subnet.
