The current Internet has been developed and used successfully in our life including daily work, entertainment, education...and so on. Even though it is so popular, it faces the problems of IP address shortage, security, and the lack of guarantees of quality of service. Scientists and Engineers developed Next Generation Internet (NGI) protocol (IPv6) in 1995. It offers plenty of IP address, more efficient, betters security and quality of services. There are so many counties applied IPv6 addresses such as US 67, Japan 60, German 50, and Taiwan 12 units of IPv6 addresses in Nov. 2003. There are few enterprises used NGI today. In this paper, we investigate the enterprises interested in NGI. The results show the enterprises concern the contents of NGI most, then the more IP address and security. One surprised finding is that Banking and Insurance Industrial do not care about these issues. So, we should provide more information to Banking and Insurance Industrial. Reasons to choose Internet Service Providers are service, then the speed and price. The cost is not a most important factor for enterprises to choose Internet Service Provider. They care service and speed more than others. Moreover, the enterprises prefer more speed, lower cost, more security, multiple IP addresses, more contents, better video, and easier to use. Therefore, we should provide those benefits as soon as possible in order to migrate to NGI.
