2015, FIOS IPV6

Does anyone know if Verizon is even alpha/beta testing IPV6 on FIOS?  I'd love to sign up / help test.

I will state the obvious that in 2015 IPV6 adoption should be increasing exponentially... Comcast offers it!

Don't worry. It's coming in the 3rd quarter of 2012.

"Verizon is implementing these dual stack upgrades in its FiOS network, and the first upgrades will become available starting in 3Q12. The first phase will include Verizon FiOS customers who have a dynamic IP address."

Alpha and beta's were done a long time ago.  Also reportedly some business's have gotten it.  But unfortunately no new info since 2013 has been posted.

Verizon as a company is moving very fast to IPV6 and is currently one of the if not the biggest US user of IPv6.  Of course that's almost completely  their Wireless division.  But it does prove there network supports it.

Unfortunately they probably got a lot of relief because of that so they don't feel the urgency to move faster for their residential clients (HSI and FIOS).

Several of us have been pestering them for updates through various channels.

So here we are not able to access the entire internet. Not buying the argument that VZ has the largest v6 network. Thinking I might have to switch to cable to get access to the whole internet.

What part of the internet requires IPV6?

If it's any consolation, speaking as one of the people who helped originally build out AS 701, which is now at the core of the "VZ Business" network, I'm disappointed too.
