Hi there group members pleased to be here, I'm here to learn and share information...Looking forward to start an interesting conversation here....Continue

As my double said it! right On chief.... we need more IPv6 deployments and connectivity in the Caribbean. ISPs need to make it mandatory for end users to traverse the internet on the dual stack Ipv4/Ipv6 and proxy between if necessary.
After all its not difficult at all to enable IPv6 support client and Operating systems connecting to your network to get IPv6 addressed also. It starts by getting your pool or however many billion of IP address from just a 48/64 bit subnet... but for the big Guys I recommend at least 32 bit. you can issue pools from
It now time to start the conversation, especially after having searched the internet and found that in the Caribbean for e.g. have a very slow adoption rate and is causing a pain on internet browsing speeds (ie. navigating domains via browser), application development etc...
How does this relate...?
Well, First let us consider DNS and how it works (a client queries Internal/ISP DNS server -> query root DNS servers :: root DNS server respond to Internal/ISP DNS server that respond to client)... in most cases deployments of an IPv6 enabled DNS server closest to the client, but, not connected to an IPv6 link or having a globally routable address will try to check if it can resolve a query via IPv6 first (causing a delay), then IPv4 is checked. On some systems this is set in sync, so you might get the answers at the same time if connection exist to both IPv4 and IPv6 networks from the queried server.
These check, you must remember are connections between DNS servers not from the DNS client to the queried DNS server. and therefore the Client sits waiting until the queried DNS server respond with the resolved IP of the domain name queried.
So you see Jamaica and the other Caribbean nations need to start taking about improving the Internet by adopting IPv6 protocol as it has for IPv4 throughout their networks and data centers.
