The graphs that I look at are not at Google, but the MRTG graphs generated 
from my own routers. I have been passing between 55 and 60 percent of 
total traffic via IPv6. In nighttime use, Netflix is king, and it is IPv6 
enabled.  In a 24 hour period, more v6 traffic happens during non business 

Because of happy eyeballs, I think something has been going on over at 
Google that is dropping their IPv6 traffic artificially.  I have the 
plugin installed that shows the red 4 and green 6 for each site I visit. 
I have noticed in the last 6 months or so that even though I have native 
IPv6 on my network, I often find I am viewing Google and its related 
properties in IPv4.  Something must be going on over there.  I do not 
think it is my connection, since when this happens I will open a tab to 
APNIC, ARIN or other site and have no issue with IPv6. Both these sites 
show your IP.  A quick DNS check does show that it must be a speed issue 
for IPv6, as both the A and AAAA records are there when this happens.

The true test is your own network measurements, not that of Google's 
inbound traffic measurements.  It would also be nice if more of the top 
1000 or so would also share their traffic patterns like Google. Also, 
remember the effect of caching servers at Netflix and others when 
considering the traffic measurements of exchange points, as cache hits do 
not pass thru the exchange point, and therefore are not reflected in those 

While not moving as fast as hoped, that Google measurement is still 
clearly moving up and to the right.
