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 ...

That's the crux. And those modems are often supplied by the ISP, so the cost
would be on them.
