Avenue4 has published a report regarding the state of the IPv4 address market. In their report they note that the pricing per block is dependent on size with smaller blocks being transferred for about $13.50 per IPv4 address and the largest blocks of >1M addresses being transferred for around $11 per address. The low point in the market is around the /16 blocks of ~65k addresses for around $10 per address.
Akamai has released their 2017-Q1 state of the Internet report, and as usual it includes some interesting insights into what is going on in how the world is connected.
A few interesting things I noted:
- 814M active IPv4 addresses were observed
- Belgium remains the IPv6 adoption leader at 38% of connections supporting dual-stack, followed by Greece at 25%, and the US at 22%
- Verizon & T-Mobile now have 82% of connections to Akamai being served over IPv6
