I don't think users need to be charged any extra for IPv6 if it runs in the
same pipe as their actual IPv4 one.

Do we charge to our customers when we solve a bug or problem in our network

IPv6 was invented to solve a "bug" in IPv4: The lack of enough addresses.

Of course, now IPv6 could bring extra features, and we should take the
opportunity to make new business based on that. The existence of an
"unlimited" addressing space for every customer itself will allow to create
new services and apps (unfortunately still to come, and that's the main
issue), which we will be able to charge for.

Also that will generate extra bandwidth demand, which we will also charge

Of course, at the end is a competition problem. If some carriers/ISPs don't
charge for IPv6 service, may be others will need to same if they want to
stay in the market.
