A new internet is here today… That’s right, internet.
Like Sting Theory, or Daylight Saving, it’s a difficult concept to grasp, but today is the day that participating ISPs, HW manufacturers and search engines enable the Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address system.
Apparently, the old internet (IPv4, don’t ask) could hold a finite amount of IP addresses, and every single thing in the world that’s online (or will come online at some point) uses an IP address. So it was reaching a critical mass, and no more addresses would mean no more things.
According to the experts, the new internet is “trillions upon trillions” of times larger, essentially creating a limitless internet. And everything will be fine, they promise.
That just happened. Here’s a video to explain.
