A Swiss VM hosting provider has a technical blog post about how to kill IPv4 completely on FreeBSD. That is to say, turning it completely off, not just preferring IPv6. They then solicit concrete solutions describing, along with a proof of concept, how to turn IPv4 completely off in other operating systems and allowing them to communicate with IPv6 only.

    IPV4 is 'filled up'.

    I have a /60 for IPV6 from my provider. My router asks for a /64 from that.

    That is the state of the 'US'.

    I can never remember if /60 indicates the number of bits you get to play with, or the number of bits that are fixed for the entire subnet.
