Internet soon be run out of addresses

Rod Beckstrom, chief executive of ICANN, said only 8 or 9 per cent of ipv4 addresses were left, and companies needed to switch to the new standard of ipv6 as quickly as possible.

"We are running out," he told Reuters in an interview. "That move really needs to be made, we're seeing this scarce resource run down." Ipv4, used ever since the Internet became public in the 1980s, was created with space for only a few billion addresses, whereas ipv6 has trillions.
