IPv6 Support

Charter is committed to providing you the best Internet experience. As the Internet evolves, so do our services. Along with the industry, we are making the transition to IPv6.

IPv6 is a next-generation version (version 6) of the Internet Protocol, which is the "language" used by devices to communicate over the Internet and over most private networks.

The current version of IP, IPv4, has the capability to provide a unique address to approximately 4.3 billion devices on the Internet. After being in use for almost 40 years the IPv4 address space has been almost entirely allocated, and the Internet Protocol version 6 will replace it.
