The biggest IPv6 traffic I have ever seen is in one of Chinese university in Beijing, the reason behind that is--school charge student for their IPv4 traffic but not IPv6 traffic, so they use IPv6 to download:)(about 5G/second) so example like that will tech us, end of the day, the cost is the most important thing, not many people really care about how long the future goes as long as it is not broken now, as long as people has no economical intensive to go for IPv6, then won't do that. But once the end user has the presure of money for going IPv6,then they will, but the core point I am raising here is: since end customer already paying somewhere around 10-100USD/IP/year, at current low IPv4 price, I didn't see much of economic intensive exits at the end user side(only in ISP side, but again, we have free lunch for past 20 years, does it really matter a lot for that free lunch raise it's price a bit in which still be a relative cheap price). So, let me summary my point, I believe current IPv4 price does not offer enough intensive for most of end user to go IPv6.Maybe we need about 100USD/IP to drive IPv6 into a everyday world.
