Another internet service provider (ISP) has called on broadband providers to assist with the adoption of IPv6.

Echoing the comments from Plusnet's Richard Fletcher, Piers Daniell, Managing Director of Fluidata UK, claimed that ISPs can speed up the development of new services by promoting the new Internet Protocol.

He claimed that this will help increase the UK's competitiveness on a global scale.

Mr Daniell noted that getting websites to be viewed over IPv4 and IPv6 is proving "problematic" for some.

"What most companies don't realise is that their website, for a time, will need to be seen by both. This means that companies need to almost dual-stack their sites .

"The focus must be on solving the issue on a wider scale. Even today most hardware shipped by ISPs to providers still doesn't cater for IPv6 or will only once a software patch is applied."

Earlier this week, networking manufacturer Billion UK claimed to have developed the first broadband router which is compliant with IPv6.
