Carrier NAT & Static IPs


[link to this post]
 
I was thinking about switching to Plusnet Fibre sometime in the next couple of months, but today I read the news about the Carrier NAT trial. If I were to pay for a static IPv4 address, would I be required to give it up during my 18 month contract if Plusnet wanted to switch to using a carrier NAT system? :/

No, you wouldn't have to give up your static ip.

Is there a plan to roll out CG NAT and would it be just to those without a static IP. Or even just the value products?

We're just trialling to see how it works atm as part of a larger IPv6/IPv4 exhaustion strategy.

How is the IPv6 trial coming along?

IPv6? Let's just go back to RFC1. It mentions a 5-bit field for the host ID (which we would now call IP address). 32 IP addresses should be enough for everybody tongue
OK, the "network" at the time had not been built yet and it was planned to have 4 computers...

What does that mean??
They decided not to bother with IPv6? confused
Sticking with IPv4 and CG NAT is a better solution than all the hassle of migrating to IPv6??
Or it's just on hold for a while?

As a customer I'm certainly not keen on the idea of CG NAT

We were trialling IPv6. Was working quite well. We stopped the trial after getting loads of feedback. It was a trial, not part of the formal implementation. CGNAT is similar, just a trial to learn how well it works (or doesn't)
