Grandma will get another ISP.


What percentage of customer downtime is considered a success for ipv6 transition for a service provider? Lost revenue due customer desertion?

Are those people on the phone you talk to at Verizon or Comcast "Network Engineers"?

What percentage of the television set top boxes provided by ISP triple play providers have an ipV6 stack? What percentage of the VOD backend? How much loss of revanue of lost video on demand is acceptable?

How much have you worked with DOCSIS compliant cable gear under ipv6 or ipv4/6 hybrid mode? HOOO Daddy!

Is Comcast going to buy grandma a new router? Ship it to grandma for free? Different Comcast?
