Despite this, many Internet services still use the older protocol. All devices that use the Internet such as computers or mobile phones require an IP address to communicate with other devices on the network. The number of users of Internet services is growing every day, which is why IPv6 was created (more available IP addresses if IPv4 becomes oversubscribed).
