breaking away from la provided broadband, advice needed please.
We have decided to go alone with our own broadband due to the appaling service and cost of our local authority provision.
I have been asked by our new provider for some ip information and since ive never had to worry about this before, since its been dealt with by the la, i would like some advice please.
IP6 - our new provider has asked if we are wanting to use ip6 in addidition to ip4. Seeming as we have nothing as far as im aware that specifically requires ip6 i dont see the need unless anyone has any suggestions as to why it would be necessary..
NAT - as far as im aware the local authority nat our line. However seeming as we're breaking away is nat really necessary for our line since it can cause issues with lots of other network services.
We currently have our main functions hosted off site, email, vle, slg and i dont see them being bought back internally any time soon.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
