Hi Adiel,

Thanks for this information. I followed closely the discussions especially
the comment attributed to you that most African networks are v6 compliant
largely due to the recent purchase of newer equipment. I had sent in a
question at the tail end of the discussion and someone else had asked the
question on the economics of the migration.

I think the information you provided on the compliance of equipment is
extremely useful but was hoping you could provide more clarity and
information in terms of figures and numbers to that effect. For instance,
what has been the spend by companies or countries for newer more compliant
equipment? Is the move to purchase newer equipment a conscious effort
towards compliance to v6 or just a normal part of equipment upgrade that
companies or institutions engage in? Or any other reasons?

It was good seeing you again, though remotely. Keep up the good work.
