Fraction of IPv6 traffic (in packets and bytes) for monthly passive traces

The vertical dot-dash lines mark IPv6 Day (2011/06/08) and IPv6 Launch Day (2012/06/06). The horizontal (top) and vertical (right) dashed lines intersect where the ratio is predicted to hit 50% (equal amounts of IPv6 and IPv4 traffic). The IPv6 fraction has increased 10-fold every 3 years so far.
