In this case server providers should use IPv6 instead of wasting v4 ones everywhere.

I wonder how many are allocated to existing cloud companies that aren't used. eg. I know AWS won't run out of IPv4 yet, as they probably have a high turn over.

IPv6 has been slow to gain support I think unfortunately.

Ha, for sure. Well according to this 10 year old article (can't find much updated info) the US Military supposedly has/had 12 entire /8 blocks so 201 million addresses. I can't imagine they could all possibly being used. More strangely the Ford Motor Co. has an entire block out of just 256 to themselves as do 'Eli Lilly and Company' a pharma company I've never heard of. The others I can sort of understand. 😅

They blocked them for all the drones. Every drone has its own and reserved IP. 😅
