Crap, I knew someone would catch that :-)...
Seriously, "are moving" is the operative term here. Those
who are moving are the (new) ones that can't get IPv4
anymore, and/or the (new) ones that can't get IPv4 anymore
and don't want to mess about with translating 464646464...
I know, for example, that Facebook's backend communications
are 95% based on IPv6, as of March this year. It's likely
this could be 100% by now, but I have no updates since then.
My point is if new customers in the rest of the world are
only getting IPv6, all the IPv4 configured on African
devices won't help communications between Africa and those
Of course, I'm thinking a couple of years from now - but one
has to start now.
