New Zealand impact of World IPv6 Launch Day

On 6 June 2012, World IPv6 Launch Day went off with a  hiss and a roar. Launch Day proved interesting in New Zealand, with a marked increase in total IPv6 traffic and a flurry of pageviews on this website!

Pageviews were up 10 times in percentage terms compared with pageviews on a normal day. That is, 450 pageviews on Launch Day compared with c.sub-30 pageviews normally. The share of hompage-views versus metrics-views also increased, with the metrics page being the second most popular.

Launch Day also received a good amount of coverage in the New Zealand Press. For more details, check out the following Google Document:
