IPv6: Switzerland is now the world’s biggest adopter

Switzerland has raced to the top of the league table of world IPv6 adoption.

IPv6 adoption stands at 10.11 percent in Switzerland – the highest penetration of any country, according to stats from Google, which takes a snapshot of adoption by measuring the proportion of users that access Google services over IPv6.

Switzerland is thought to have taken the top spot in late May, overtaking nearest rival Romania which has led IPv6 adoption for around a year. Romania’s IPv6 adoption now stands at 9.02 percent, Google says.

Cisco also measures IPv6 progress by allotting each country a score based on various individually-weighted elements, including the number of IPv6-enabled websites and transit networks, users on IPv6, and activity around IPv6 prefixes (whether they’ve been requested or are live).
