IPv6 support for home Internet

Hi, I was wondering if Fido has any plans for deploying IPv6 to their home internet customers?  I just recently signed up with the 60M/10M promo plan and while Rogers is now offering it with a similar modem, I was curious if Fido is ready as well?  I'm willing to help test as well.  Smiley

 

Thanks.

The Fido modem has still NOT been certified for IPV6 on the Rogers network. The last I heard it was still undergoing testing, but there is NO ETA on when Fido users will get IPV6. My guess is they will probably focus on the Rogers modems before tackling Fido. And currently the Rogers CODA-4582 has a few issues, including incompatibility with IPV6.

It's a Hitron CGN3AMF.  Just activated the service this past Tuesday and I've switched it over to bridge mode with a pfsense firewall plugged in behind it.  So far the firewall is not receiving any IPv6 prefixes.

Re: IPv6 support for home Internet

Anyone?  How about Fido support, can you find out if IPv6 is enabled for us or if we have to request it individualy?

 

Thanks.

Hey @lobotiger! Smiley

 

Our modems are IPv6 compatible. As for if we actually offer it on our plans, I will need to get back to you about this.

Re: IPv6 support for home Internet

You do have the option to use Rogers 6rd services, which work perfectly find on Fido Internet. Keep in mind the 6rd tunnel is limited to 25mpbs max download. http://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/Getting_connected/highlight/true...

Great, thank you for the responses everyone.  I guess I'll hold off for now...might end up reestablishing my HE tunnel I was using before until I can get a proper dual stack setup with Fido.

Re: IPv6 support for home Internet

Hey lobotiger, 

 

We were able to confirm that the Fido Internet Modem (Hitron CGN3AMF) is definitely IPv6 compatible. However we do not currently have any scheduled deployment to switch our customers from IPv4 to IPv6. 

 

I hope this helps clear things up a little. Smiley

IPv6 support for home Internet

Hi, I just signed up for Fido internet after being gone for a couple of years.  I'm wondering what the status is for support of IPv6?  I have my modem setup in bridge mode and my firewall seems to have an IPv6 address on the WAN interface, but I'm wondering if there are any specific instructions on what I need to do for my LAN side?  When I was with Rogers I had to configure things a certain way to get IPv6 working and I would like to know if Fido's setup is similar or different.

 

Thanks.
