Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has implemented IPv6 in its Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) service networks. This is to counter the issue of more subscribers on the telco’s broadband network.

With the arrival of the second round of lockdowns around the country, the need for fibre broadband internet has shot up yet again. Because of that, BSNL Bharat Fibre, the FTTH arm of the state-run telco, has been adding plenty of subscribers at a very fast rate. Another reason for the fast addition of broadband users is the quality and competitive plans that BSNL provides to its users.

The telco has upgraded its broadband networks from IPv4 to IPv6 for ensuring that a smooth internet experience can be provided to the users.

IPv4 Addresses Might Have Exhausted

Since BSNL has been adding a ton of new subscribers, the telco might have exhausted the IPv4 addresses soon. To ensure that it doesn’t hinder the broadband internet experience of the users, the telco has upgraded its networks to IPv6 for the FTTH users who are parented towards BSNL’s Juniper BNGs(Broadband Network Gateway).

One thing that’s bound to happen when you configure IPv6 on your FTTH ONT (optical network terminal) is a better browsing experience. Since multiple websites today are compatible with IPv6, configuring the ONT to IPv6 will allow you to get a faster internet experience.

You can change the WAN settings on your ONU/ONT device of the connection. Presently, the IP protocol on your ONU device would be configured as IPv4. But you need to change that to IPv4/IPv6.
