What’s IPv4 and IPv6?
But what does IPv4 and IPv6 mean? Well, these are both Internet Protocol (IP) versions. IPv6 is the latest version. It is meant to eventually replace IPv4, which is still in widespread use today. IPv4 uses a 32 bit IP address, while IPv6 uses a 64 bit IP.
The challenge with IPv4 is that it’s running out of IPs to assign to new machines that are getting connected to the internet. That’s because every computer, phone, and iOT device that’s connected to the internet needs an IP.

In truth, a lot of people have Vodafone routers out there because this is a commonly searched item. And a lot of them are looking to use these routers on other networks.
That only makes sense. If you have a MiFi device, you should be able to use it on any other network. In fact, there should be dual SIM mifi devices out there. Perhaps there already are some!
