IPv6 – Internet Protocol version 6
The Internet is growing … and AT&T is ready
IPv6 is making room
Everything that connects to the Internet has to have its own unique Internet Protocol (IP) address.
Think of an IP address as a phone number that websites and devices use to communicate with each other.
But as more and more people use smart devices, and the Internet of Things picks up speed, we’re running out of IPv4 addresses.
That’s where IPv6 came in. It created almost limitless addresses.
The transition to IPv6 started years ago. But no worries. You probably won’t have to do anything. We’ve got you covered.
