I think that applies to everyone on here.

As a number of ISP's killed off their IPV6 networks for consumers, and unless you are networking geek then their is no need to use IPv6.
I have a feeling that IPv6 on VoLTE is more a POT rather than anything else.
I have a feeling that only the core network guys at o2 will know about IPv6, and not many people on the forums will know about it, or what it does
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini
I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World
We are all customers and dont have access to any o2 accounts

I would say NAT does cause issues and not support some protocols and hence we need IPv6. There should be some reason for some organisations sticking with public IP addresses even on IPv4. I mean using public IP addresses in LAN.
In certain large countries private IPv4 address space is not even enough for accomodating VoLTE users of the whole country.

Many other mobile providers are rolling out IPv6, EE for example.
Yes there are few of us that are geeks but the truth of the matter is that IPv6 has been out for at least a decade.
O2 should provide this functionality or look at losing customers.

Any update on this.
I'm 1 month from my contract finishing and given the deals I'm seeing IPv6 will be the deciding factor.
China heavily uses IPv6, in fact I've rolled out IPv6 for a research department at work.
I've also got a large allocation (/56) of IPv6 addresses at home and it would be real nice to be able to use these publicly on mobile devices. Not to mention the benefits of non-NATd IP addresses and VOIP.
