Submission + - IPv6 reach just increased by 1.5 million people (

An anonymous reader writes: Subscribers of the second largest ISP in France can now enable IPv6 without extra cost. Deploying IPv6 service took Free just 5 weeks, from getting an IPv6 prefix to offering the option to all of Free's 1.5 million customers. A modified 6to4 protocol called 6rd, short for IPv6 rapid deployment, enables reliable tunnels through IPv4-only access networks without the problems which users of 6to4 tunnels can encounter when communicating with native IPv6 hosts. Alexandre Cassens of Free presented this major step at the Ripe 58 meeting in Amsterdam and reportedly received standing ovations from Google's IPv6 expert Lorenzo Colitti.
