I have some good news on IPv4 addresses to share. We have received the
concrete new pricing for our subnet. For those who don't recall, our ISP
wrote at the end of 2012 that the prices for IPv4 addresses and subnets
will get more expensive, due to the scarcity of these.

However, the price change isn't as heavy as I thought. Instead of 22,50
€ per month for our /27 subnet, we will pay 32 € in the future,
beginning with May 1st.

So, the good news is that there is no demand to remove existing
addresses from VMs, which I had anticipated before.

However, IPv6 is clearly the future, and so our new infra which is
currently in development will fully support IPv6, and for new testing
machines, we still consider offering only IPv6. Best is to get to know
to IPv6, and if your ISP doesn't provide such connectivity, try a
tunnel, like or (the latter one has
an easy to use client for all platforms and setups).


Unless I am incorrect, the EU is far more ahead on IPv6 than we are in N.America. Is this correct? My ISP does not feel enough pressure yet to make any changes in the very near future.

Tunnelling for me will have to be the only option. I checked around and the other local ISP's are pretty well saying the same thing, unless you go to the more expensive providers.
