We assign each enterprise customer an IPv6 prefix. I'd estimate use of
it at 0% today (even there about 5% of them ask for it).

Our service provider customers are more interested in getting the IPv6
BGP session going, and announcing their IPv6 allocation. I'd estimate
that at about 50% (much of which comes through pestering them).

In general, it is a lack of interest.
