> To: nanog at nanog.org
> Colleagues of nanog,
> In 1999, Jeroen and I started SixXS, a project which aimed to provide
> IPv6 connectivity to users who wanted to learn about the network
> protocol and gain experience operating IPv6 networks. Our vision was
> to facilitate migration to IPv6 in content and access providers.
> We were able to provide IPv6 to 50’000+ individual users and companies
> in 140+ countries, using servers hosted at 40+ Internet providers in
> 30+ countries. We are incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished
> together, and how many people have gotten to know all about IPv6 due
> to our combined efforts.
> We have completed a retrospective and rationale document, which
> details our experience developing and operating the SixXS tunnelbroker
> over the last 18 years. We have worked through our plans with the many
> dedicated ISPs that have been involved:
> https://www.sixxs.net/sunset/
> We have reached out to users recently, giving them 6 weeks to make
> alternative plans. We have chosen a somewhat symbolic date of
> 2017-06-06 to turn down the SixXS service. Our website will remain as
> a tombstone.
> Please feel free to pass this along to any group or list you feel
> would benefit from it, and reach out to <info at sixxs.net> or to myself
> directly <pim at ipng.nl> if you have thoughts you’d like to share
> between now and then.
> Kindest Regards,
> Pim van Pelt and Jeroen Massar (SixXS founders)
