hey #mastoadmin folks:
did you know that you can make the experience for users on mobile data networks faster by making sure your instance is accessible over IPv6?
This is because in a lot of mobile data networks nowadays, IPv4 connectivity is provided via CGN device (Carrier Grade NAT) and IPv6 is provided natively which means that IPv4 is going to be slower.
If your instance's web front end doesn't have IPv6 connectivity, what's the blocker?
If your provider provides IPv6 connectivity and you need help configuring it, hit me up
I'll be glad to help
If you are using masto.host, that's something you need to take up with the folks that run masto.host
@packetcat My suspicion is that the root cause is around floating IP addresses. My usual strategy when doing cloud hosting is to reserve a floating IP, put that floating IP in my DNS, and pin that floating IP each time I need to change my underlying VM. I've not found a single provider that supports floating IPv6 addresses, including Openstack.
