Sandvine: YouTube and Netflix are Biggest IPv6 Sites in N.America

Netflix and Facebook enabled some IPv6 functionality in late May, which has helped to more than double the share of IPv6 traffic in just the past two weeks, according to new data published by Sandvine. IPv6 only represents roughly 0.45% of downstream traffic on fixed access networks in North America. YouTube is biggest IPv6 site, accounting for more than half of all native IPv6 traffic measured, followed by Netflix.
