Want to buy an Internet IPv4 address? Cheap? ;-))))
Let the IPv4 black market BEGIN! Cha-Ching!
Bring on IP Version 6.0
Easily another 18-24 months away. Places like Vietnam, some school districts, among other places around the world are projecting they will not be ready for IPv6 for another 5 years.
There is plenty of IPv4 space still available. Between those who've managed to gobble it up before the pinch, old defunct companies that were assigned huge blocks that are not being used, IPv4 could easily last another 5-10 years if some of that was reclaimed.
Level3 is making a mint right now on IP's and some super duper mailers. They will be fighting IPv6 all the way until they've managed to monetize IPv6 properly. You can bet your bottom dollar.
Our own U.S. government is not mandated until the END of 2012.
Mailers are going to love this ole buddy....
Nothing like being able to literally track your I.D. down by IP and monitor what you're doing.
APNIC was predicted to run out by the end of April... ARIN still has plenty of room and is not being exhausted nearly as fast.
How is this different from what we have right now unless you are forging headers? If ISPs follow guidelines they'll publish your rwhois already. You can still have as many identities to represent you as you want.
The only people who are screaming that the " IPV 4 sky is falling" are people selling IP address. Its always great to artificially inflate a market...
The US Gov will eventually release some of its IP address back into the mix and Arin will reclaim some of the massive space not being used by Universities. Those two alone will easily cover another 5 yrs.
Iam not saying you should burn IP address like its 1999 but its total BS that we are going to run out anytime soon.
lol i call bullshit. They ran out first because they, without question, gave almost a fifth of their ip space to Chinanet who use them to basically blast illegal activities (spamming, hacking, ddos attacks etc) with complete legal immunity. But go ahead and blame it on the mobile users
It's most likely a combination of all above. A lot of the mobile and new web technology require an IP. So as time goes on, they would have run into this issue eventually. That said, those huge blocks you mentioned for the other uses would wipe out huge chunks fo sho.
