On Tuesday October 3, ICANN through its Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) allocated large blocks of IPv6 address spaces to each of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) to promote the efficient assignment of those address spaces to the RIRs' customers.

"These allocations put in place a sweeping new system for allocating IPv6 addresses in keeping with the global policy development process conducted by the registries' communities and ratified by the ICANN Board of Directors on September 7 this year" said Dr Paul Twomey, President and CEO of ICANN.
