The holiday season is rapidly approaching and this year is coming to a close, another one done and another one that seen some great and wonderful and also unfortunately some sad moments.

Examining IPv6 Performance
Examining IPv6 Performance

Every so often I hear the claim that some service or other does not support IPv6 not because of some technical issue, or some cost or business issue, but simply because the service operator is of the view that IPv6 offers an inferior level service as compared to IPv4, and by offering the service over IPv6 they would be exposing their clients to an inferior level of performance of the service.
