In March 2003, the IETF decided that was the right time to start the phase-out of the IPv6 experimental network (6Bone), which started in 1996. This included a phase-out plan that defined that on 6 of June of 2006, no 6Bone prefixes will be used on the Internet in any form.

ISOC, AfriNIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC, RIPE NCC, ICANN/IANA, The IPv6 Portal and other organizations, join together in order to celebrate this milestone.

The web site allows organizations that offer free IPv6 connectivity services (such as tunnel brokers) and/or public IPv6-trial services, to register them, so they can be used on June 6, as a virtual celebration of the 6Bone phase-out.

The services can be registered at the IPv6 Day website.
