Indeed. Zen are about complete with their trial I think. or will be soon.
And both IDNet and AAISP have been running dual-stack for several years now wink

It took over three weeks before BT got around to updating my firmware to the latest version after I started using the HH5... - and that was with it continuously connected..

No idea, but if BT unilaterally changes it network and old hardware does not work, free new hardware should be provided

I can't see that happening, I'm sure at worst BT customers with legacy routers will be left with a (CGN'd) IPv4 and no IPv6.

And would make for an interesting day in court whether that was a material change to an ongoing service for those in a contract. I would say it was, as while cgnat is fine for the vast majority of activities it may prove problematic for some services and lead to confusion when some new bit of software does not work.

BT could offer a facility for people to opt-out of CGN as they did do in the past. The vast majority will not opt-out so no problem with running out of addresses.

We had to opt out a little while back due to some features we needed to use failed to work and we did some searching and was sharing of IPs that was at fault, and just asked BT to take us off of it and all worked fine since.

Still waiting for BT to switch us to IPv6 due to all our network is IPv6 ready along with our remote servers.

Ah yeah, the opt-out page is still here: https://www.bt.com/appsconsumeraccount/ipSharing.do

I don't know how active BT are these days with provisioning customers on CGN, I haven't heard much about it recently.

Yeah that seems about right, I ended up doing over the phone and got that and BTFON disabled, we get very low ADSLx as it is so we didn't want to share what we did get LOL.

The problem is the new hardware BT sent them is IPv6 compatible being the newer HH5, but it is this newer hub that is not working as it should.
