There is content available over IPv6 now.  The IPv6 adoption rate for 
South Africa is 0.46%.  The University of the Free State mentioned 
that it switched to IPv6 last year.  www.ufs.ac.za is IPv4 only 
though.  www.tenet.ac.za is IPv4 only.  whois.co.za is IPv4 only.

The above (quoted text) happens everywhere.  The presentations I saw 
mentioned plans to deliver IPv6 in 2012.
