the future of IPv6 in Harrisonburg

Tuesday, October 28, 2008


Another Q&A with City Council candidates: The project to bring IPv6 to Harrisonburg failed. Is having IPv6 connectivity in the city something worth pursuing? If so, what should Council do about it?

Harrisonburg IPv6 deployment woes aside, what happens if World Airwaves does manage to provide v6 access to parts of the city before fall?
