Submission + - UK ISP PlusNet Tests IP Address Sharing ->

judgecorp writes: "Faced with the shortage of IPv4 addresses and the failure of IPv6 to take off, British ISP PlusNet is testing carrier-grade network address translation CG-NAT, where potentially all the ISP's customers could be sharing one IP address, through a gateway.
