Videotron has begun implementing the IPv6 Internet Protocol. The Beta version is available to residential customers who want it and who have the Wi-Fi router that Videotron has been offering since January.

Introduction of the IPv6 protocol has become necessary because IPv4 addresses are running out around the world.

“The roll-out of the Beta version of IPv6 will give early adopters a chance to get in on the ground floor,” said Pierre Roy, VP/Engineering, Research and Development with Videotron, in a statement.

Registered customers of Videotron will be able to actively participate in World IPv6 Day, coordinated by the Internet Society (ISOC), the international organization that governs the development of the Internet. Starting at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7, Google, Yahoo, Facebook and other websites will activate IPv6 for 24 hours.
