Customers fume as BT introduces IP sharing

Posted on 3 May 2013 at 16:20

BT is testing a system that would see [multiple] broadband customers
share [single] IP addresses to avoid the looming IPv4 shortage. ...

Carrier-grade NAT

In brief, for those so afflicted, you lose the ability to run any sort
of personal home server for such as your own home-hosted cloud devices,
or even to be able to take part in some internet multi-user games or any
system that needs to call up your IP address...

Old news but something I've just stumbled across. So why are such ISPs
not moving up to use IPv6 instead?!
