I want to ask if EE are looking to carry out any (OTA?) updates to their routers to facilitate IPv6 protocols? With the obvious, and well publicised, saturation of IPv4 addresses and since wider adoption of IPv6 in 2011 more websites are using the 128-bit encryption. I have found more sites are becoming slower on my PC due to the “dual stack” issue presented by EE as my ISP provider who still only have IPv4 connectivity on their router/modems. I have changed my PC’s networking cards to be ready for this but limited presently by EE as my ISP.
Does anyone have insight into whether EE are looking to change the protocol in their devices and, if so, any timescales? Thanks.

EE's Brightboxes already have IPv6 connectivity. You can IPv6 test - IPv6/4 connectivity and speed test here.

Just checked connectivity using your weblink - see attached file of score result section??
How can you improve your score ?

Should have responded to this by now. It's top comment in searches regarding IPv6 on EE. Looking into buying a seperate gaming router and doing away with the Bright Box 2.
