According to a Research & Development Support 
Engineer [1] from Afrinic "Les opérateurs de 
télécommunications mauriciens ne sont pas 
préparés à passer à l’IPv6".  According to the 
President of the IPv6 Forum: "Rien n’a été fait à 
Maurice pour déployer l’IPv6".  According to the 
data on 6spots there are eight LIRs in that 
country with IPv6 and over 50% IPv6 "announcements".

Would it be possible for you to ask the Research 
& Development Support Engineer for advice as it 
may be easier for a person sitting in the same 
office as you to explain how to verify the 
information for that country?  If you encounter 
any difficulties please send me an email with the 
data you are working on and I'll try to help.
