    No. IPv6 is hexadecimal, and you have the letter "v" in there.

    Just in case, hexadecimal is the numerals 0 - 9 and the letters a - f.

    In any case the last 64 bits are usually assigned for host, i think the smallest routable prefix is /56 so take the first 3-4 blocks and you can find who would own it (just fill it with 0s)

    3rd block is also missing a leading 0 i think convention says your not allowed to omit it, needs all 4. Although anyone using a calculator will have it dropped.

    In anycase

    is telstra
