Thank you for using Asahi Net.
With the recent launch of IPv6 Connection Feature in April 2017, we have come to terminate the AAAA filtering service which has been offered with the launch of Asahi Net’s World IPv6 in 2012.
The decision has been made to avert duplications with the existing measures being taken by both NTT East and West with the recent IPv6 Connection Feature.

It is a filtering function to eliminate AAAA record at the time of IPv4 connection for it may delay the data communication speed of web browsing, with the use of NTT East/West FTTH with FLET’S, in case a user accessing to a host that has both "A record (IPv4 address)" and "AAAA record (IPv6 address)" in the setting.
