re: IPv4

I have a question regarding ipv4.


If I move to a new cable isp say, late this upcoming year, am I screwed in any way because there are no more addresses available??

I don't really understand what running out of addresses really means to the internet user or internet provider

No, we're not out of IPV4 address space yet, and it would be up to your ISP to address anyway, not you.

There won't be an issue.

Firstly, IPv4 addresses haven't "run out" yet. The number of available addresses is shrinking, but ISPs in general still have a large enough block allocated to them that they can use for future subscribers.

Some may differ from my opinion, but I really don't think the situation is as dire as the alarmists are wanting to claim; especially when it comes to the average consumer Internet connection.
