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.

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.
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.
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.
Digging up an old article. Has Fido Internet officially rolled out IPV6 support and with prefix deligation? Switch back to Fido Internet after being away for many years and I can now get IPv6 on the WAN. I have /56 prefix selected which worked on Rogers. However, Fido does not issue any IP to my VLANs. What is the official status of IPv6?
Sorry about the delay in getting back to you.
We haven’t received communications that there will be a switch to iPv6. Keep in mind though that the gateway does support IPv6, but the prefix /64 does not allow for subnetting or assigning VLANs.
