NetCom 4G and Huawei B593s-22

Sometime ago I switched from a Huawei E220 to a Huawei B593s-22. My 3G internet connection became a 4G internet connection in an instant.

I recently turned on IPv6 on the 4G WAN interface, only to be really disappointed.

NetCom does not offer IPv6 service to its 4G customers. That’s a shame.

With ARIN running out of IPv4 addresses, it sends a clear message that IPv4 is nearing its useful lifespan. NetCom should thus begin offering IPv6 service. Our patience is running out.
