Status of IPv6 for Comcast Business Subscribers

Ideally, I'd like to have a /64 allocation of IPv6 space and the ability to add AAAA records to my DNS record set and have Comcast provision PTR records for IPv6 addresses.  Is this currently possible?  If not, when?

Re: Status of IPv6 for Comcast Business Subscribers

HI JonSkelton.  Currently Comcast is testing IPv6 on a trial basis for a limited number of subscribers.  The GA date for IPv6 functionality as well as IPv6 rDNS for Business Subscribers has not been established.  We will update this space as additional information becomes available.

 

Thank You

Re: Status of IPv6 for Comcast Business Subscribers

So, what's the hold up?  I have residential service covering the rest of my home, and business class in my home office, so both systems are running off the same strand of wire coming off the street (long story).  The residential gateway has IPv6, but my home office doesn't.  I'm beginning to believe that "in trials" translates to "we haven't got to it yet" or is the customer base on Business Internet just not worth the resource cost to just get it done?

Re: Status of IPv6 for Comcast Business Subscribers

actually, i will say that if you don't need a static IP, then you can use your own modem; IPv6 is already working fine on business class for me this way (actually, i'm pulling 3 different /64 delegated prefixes and a /128). it's just static v6 that's still not available yet

I have an IPv4  /29 block for my demo lab, and the gateway won't play with my gear that way.
