[Apologies for the cross posting]

Dear colleagues,

Yesterday, January 31st, the last 2 blocks of freely available IPv4 addresses were assigned to APNIC, and on Thursday February 3rd a press release will confirm IPv4 address depletion, at the IANA top level, as a major milestone in the evolution of the Internet.

For the live press conference and presentation, watch it on:
Thursday, 3 February 2011, at 17:30 (KSA Time, ie. UTC +3) at  http://www.nro.net/news/icann-nro-live-stream

Thanks to Dr. Latif Ladid for sharing this information and being a tireless IPv6 advocate and organizer for over a decade. 

It is time to switch on IPv6 and provide subscriber access, websites and content, over IPv6 to continue the Internet as well as mobile 3G/4G/LTE growth.

2011 has so far been a very interesting year for the Internet !

Best wishes,

Leading Global Internet Groups make Significant Announcement about the
Status of the IPv4 Address Pool

APNIC invites the Internet Community to be a part of an important milestone
in the history of the Internet.

Much has been written in the international media over the last few weeks
about the dwindling pool of Internet addresses using the original Internet
protocol, called IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4). This week, IANA
allocated two /8 address blocks to the Asia Pacific Network Information
Centre (APNIC).

As such, the Number Resource Organization (NRO), along with the Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the Internet Society
(ISOC), and the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) will be holding a press
conference and presentation to make a significant announcement and to
discuss the global transition to the next generation of Internet addresses.

     Thursday, 3 February 2011, at 09:30 (UTC -5)

     Rod Beckstrom, ICANN President and CEO
     Raul Echeberria, NRO Chair
     Lynn St. Amour, ISOC President and CEO
     Olaf Kolkman, IAB Chair
