Some ISPs have been using an alternative IPv4 sharing technique called Carrier Grade NAT (CGN), by which an IPv4 address is assigned to a network or site and then shared between end-points.

BT announced in September 2015 that it would be rolling out IPv6 to 100 percent of customers by December 2016, while Sky has been moving customers onto IPv6 since April 2015. Providers such as AAISP, Clara.net, Entanet, Exa Networks, Goscomb Technologies, IDNet, Webtapestry have also moved to IPv6.

The ability to assign more IP addresses available will be crucial as more and more devices are connected in the Internet of Things (IoT) era.
