Australians could soon be using a new Internet address system after Google, Facebook, Akamai and Yahoo agreed to an extensive program to “test flight” the new address system on June 8th.

If successful ISP’s and Internet Companies will be forced to move to IPv6 with major Companies like Google warning that most people will not notice the change.

Lorenzo Colitti, a network engineer at Google said “The good news is that internet users don’t need to do anything special to prepare for World IPv6 Day,” .

“Our current measurements suggest that the vast majority (99.95%) of users will be unaffected. However, in rare cases, users may experience connectivity problems, often due to misconfigured or misbehaving home network devices.”

The World IPv6 Day is being co-ordinated by the Internet Society, a non-profit group which educates people and companies about net issues. It has provided a webpage through which people can test their Ipv6 readiness.

On 8 June, those who sign up will make their pages available via IPv6 for 24 hours to help show up and iron out problems created by the switch to the new addressing scheme.
“By providing an opportunity for the internet industry to collaborate to test IPv6 readiness we expect to lay the groundwork for large-scale IPv6 adoption and help make IPv6 ready for prime time,” said Leslie Daigle, chief internet technology officer at the Internet Society in a statement.
