    Will the private IPv6 proxies be much cheaper than the current IPv4 proxies? According to Wikipedia: "IPv4 allows for only 4,294,967,296 unique addresses worldwide (or less than one address per person alive in 2012), but IPv6 allows for around 4.8×10[SUP]28[/SUP] addresses per person — a number unlikely ever to run out."

    Maybe a stupid question, but IPv6 private proxies will be much cheaper, because there will be a lot more IPs available? IPv4 proxies are a scarce resource, but IPv6 will give us a lot more IPs. Does the price of a private proxy depend on the number of IPs available worldwide?

    But it will be a long transition until the majority of the internet will use IPv6.

    Here is a sample IPv6 address:
    2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:ff00:0042:8329

    I'm telling you, unless they open up IPs how they should, even IPv6 will run out.

    and honestly, I wish the price would go down, but who freaking knows with such ridiculous commodities as numbers/addresses? TLDs for domains have constantly opened up, and the price just keeps increasing (yay ICANN, yay!)

    As soon as IPv6 gets implemented, they'll have to start rolling out the next system or batch of addresses.

    I stopped looking into all this stuff about a year or two ago. It's just craziness now until something official finally happens, and even then it will still be general silliness among online "standardizing" companies (like ICANN, w3, ...others)

    Hi,

    The price for IPv6 proxies & VPN's will definitely be a bit cheaper but the bandwidth and the servers still costs so don't expect to get them for free :)

    Thanks!

    Apologies for bringing up a post from so long ago, but I find it relevant to what I'm doing right now and was doing a general google search for a piece of software aimed at utilizing ipv6 proxies the way we use ipv4 ip addresses as proxies now. I believe squid has ipv6 support, but I haven't found any particular software that can multi-thread ipv6 proxies. I've just finished setting up a massive amount of ipv6 remote desktops and debian (Linux) ipv6-only proxy servers and was just researching for a piece of ipv6 proxy software to wrap this all up nicely and came across this thread in a google search so just decided to bring this up and hopefully someone out there has an idea of what I'm looking for and hopefully where to find it.

    But to comment on the original op's post, ipv6 will be cheaper to obtain but general server acquisition costs and bandwidth costs will remain the same. So the price break would not be very sufficient.

    Depends on what language you want to do this in, but it's possible. If you want to PM me I can go into a bit more detail without hijacking this thread.
