Telefonica Germany to set up parallel use of IPv6, IPv4 protocols

Friday 23 April 2021 | 19:48 CET | News
Telefonica said that O2 customers will be able to use internet protocol IPv6 for mobile data use from June at the latest, in parallel with the IPv4 protocol. The IPv6 protocol enables the connection of a larger number of devices to the network. Telefonica is upgrading the current O2 Internet access point (APN), so that customers can use the old internet protocol IPv4 too, in parallel to IPv6, in a so-called dual stack operation.
