In order to accelerate the broadband growth in the country, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on Friday issued a consultation paper to deliberate on issues relating to transition from IPv4 to IPv6.

'The growing number of 'Always On' broadband connection will require a large number of IP addresses which current version of Internet protocol (IPv4) are unable to provide. IPv6 has the capacity to expand the available address space enormously,' said the regulator in a press release.
