This is the crux of the matter - ISPs need to dish out IP-addresses.

ways - NAT for instance. Only once they've exhausted both options,
will IPv6 become a real option. For a small ISP, incompetent or not,
that could still be quite a while.

And yet, IPv6 is so easy. It's a lot easier to configure than IPv4.
ISPs may have to update some equipment, but in the mean time,

The thing is - their customers will have to as well. Ye olde Zyxel ADSL
router doesn't do IPv6 (but it does the rest of the internet very
well). New customers would have to pay extra to get a box that does
IPv6 - it's a steep path, so as long as an ISP is not actually running
out of addresses, well ...
