How do you know what your users require in therm of v4 or v6? I thought what users generally want is just to be able to access the Internet mostly for communication/information/trading purpose? 

What really matter is how you sustain your growth! Internet, beside being a technology, it drives business based on number of users (market) see it as simple as that. So the question is how do we continue to support/ensure the growth of that market? Specially in Africa if we continue to base our procurement requirements today on IPv4 only ... with the assumption that, "that is what users require"?
