abstract:
IPv6 is beginning to take off in 2020
---
body:
When is IPv6 beginning to matter? When is IPv6 taking off? These are
questions that we debate in the IPv6 community at meetings and online.
For us, 2020 has already become the year of IPv6.

## IPv6 traffic reached more than 33% (1/3) of traffic to Google
Acccording to google

## Some countries passed the 50% IPv6 deployment status
2 years ago
[India](https://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6/IN),
[Belgium](https://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6/BE),
[the US](https://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6/US),
[Malaysa](https://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6/MY) - all of them have
passed the 50% IPv6 deployment mark. **India even surpassed the 70%
mark!**

And [Greece](https://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6/GR) and
[Germany](https://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6/DE) are not far from
passing the 50% mark.
In other words: if you are living or travelling to above countries,
you have a 50% chance of getting IPv6 - and it's growing.
## IPv6 community is active and growing
At the moment there are so many cool IPv6 projects and communities
around, as many as we have never seen active before. Let us list some
projects we are aware of:
* [IPv6 Buzz](https://packetpushers.net/series/ipv6-buzz/) by Ed
Horley, Scott Hogg, and Tom Coffeen
* [IPv6 on Reddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/ipv6/)
* [The IPv6 Chat on Matrix and IRC](/u/projects/ipv6-chat/)
Did we miss a community? Just [let us know about it](/u/contact/).
## IPv6 hardware/software support improving
For many years we have been watching IPv6 support in (network)
hardware and open source software. And while not every everything is
fixed, many pain points have been solved. And what is even better:
even if your network equipment does not nicely work with IPv6, a lot
of equipment can now be made IPv6 usable just by flashing
