I'm still reasonably disappointed in the lack of drive from
retail providers to offer IPv6 to their customers, i.e., the
Granted, it is a lot more challenging to deliver IPv6 to
large scale consumers (more so in Africa, where a lot of
consumers are running data off the mobile networks).
But I think that deployment of IPv6 toward end customers in
a manner where they do not have to directly participate in
the process is where we shall see the most gains.
The old mantra still holds true - users don't care, as long
as it works.
