Free tickets to IPv6 event on Tuesday 22nd March
Monday 21 March 2011 12:28:32 by John Hunt

Tomorrow evening, Tuesday 22 March 2011, the UK Internet Community will be celebrating the end of IPv4 and the start of IPv6.

We have obtained five pairs of tickets to give away to readers of the site!

With the IPv4 address space depleted, 'Move Over IPv4 (Bring on IPv6)' will mark the end of the Internet as we know it. It will take a look back at the history of the Internet and also look forward to see what the future may hold. A ceremony will take place where IANA will hand over the last block of IPv4 addresses to RIPE, the European regional registry.

The event is to be attended by many people from the Internet community with an introductory speech from Ed Vaizey, Minister for Communication, Culture and the Creative Industries, to be followed by other talks and an IPv6 Panel Debate.

If you want to attend, please e-mail us on with a subject line of "Bring on IPv6", with a short explanation as to why you should be selected to attend. We will be selecting up to 5 responses and issuing two tickets to each. But hurry, as these are likely to go in the next few hours :)

Full details of the event can be found on the event webpage:

"the start of IPv6"? That's only about 7 years late! I would have said production (i.e. not testing) deployment started around the time when the 3ffe::/16 addresses were phased out...
