You guy keep saying burning v4 space. why you want to burn Africa's v4
space? What Africa has done to you? if you think burning v4 space take
us quickly to v6 space why there is lucrative transfer market? I tell
you when v4 is burned out you will see it was no good thing. Africa
environment is unique from other. we take time to understand and
deploy. While we do we need our v4 longer.

Burning v4 space create immediate huge problem. New ISP will find it
expensive to buy IPV4 from trasnfer maket and broker and reality of
course IPV6 not a solution. WE STILL NEED IPV4 short and MEDIUM TERM
so that to also use IPv6! Cost of doing ISP business goes high. Cost
is transfer to client and cost of internet connection goes high again.

Let us take a slow steady transition not Africa haters Sunday and
Andrew who want to ditch their people into hole and burn continents
