It's been a few hours since The search engine, The social network, a 
well-known content delivery network have enabled IPv6 for access to 
their web sites.

Here's a list for Africa.  If you are within Africa, I suggest that 
you try the following.  If you are from the rest of the world, you 
may have lost your way in the jungle and ended up in Africa. :-)

1. Go see for yourself

Enable IPv6 on your home computer.  Try it for yourself.  See what 
works for you.  If your ISP does not provide any IPv6 service, get an 
IPv6 tunnel.  It's free and it is easy to set up.

2. Don't try to be smarter than the problem

If there is a problem, there may also be some simple fix for 
it.  It's easier to ask whether someone has encountered the same 
problem and solved it instead of trying to fix it yourself.

3. Don't trust the experts

It is not because something works in the rest of the world that it 
will work for Africa.  You are better placed to know about the 
problems in your country.

4. When in doubt, do something

People spend a lot of time talking about IPv6.  They rarely do 
something.  If you have not tried IPv6, you won't know what it is.
