Re: When IPv6 ... if ever?
If I charge a customer more for IPv6 connectivity than for IPv4 connectivity, to offset the costs of dealing with ships-in-the-night routing (deploying it, training everyone to understand it), do you think my entire customer base is going to transition over to IPv6? Ask yourself, as an ISP, how much more you are willing to pay your transit providers for IPv4 + IPv6 transit, and how you are going to get the money for that and for the deployment/retraining costs. Then ask yourself, as an ISP, what benefit you get from IPv6. My answers: not a chance, none, and zero, respectively. Sean.
