Just as a matter of interest.
I deployed IPv6 to a university a few years ago (I think this was around 4 years ago?) – end to end – every single host on the network with v6, and connecting to the outside world via a proxy server that was also v6 enabled.
Today – their v6 utilization by measurement of APNIC on that ASN is close to 100% (Because they hit every single measurement point with v6).
It took a week to deploy the entire lot – but it does show what can be done.

*e) Universities (through REN ?) will realise that they can't deploy on
their networks only IPv4. It's a shame (in my humble opinion) that our
universities don't see the need of IPv6. What about their research ?
what about study of new network behavior ? protocols ? How can they rely
on this deprecated protocol ? :-\
We forget that universities are the main place of research and
