Until such devices support IPv6, to reiterate Steve's point, it's not an
option to consider approaching connectivity suppliers with IPv6 enquiries.
could you comment on christopher's observation that, given the likely
volume of v6 traffic, you would not have a v6 load worth balancing?
But to answer your question, the market isn't providing us with enough -
or rather *any* interest, and this is what matters. If we reach the
point where people can't buy widgets from us until we support IPv6, or
that people would rather buy widgets from someone else because they
support it, then we have to move.
I don't know if there can be other financial incentives for us - if we
can buy IPv6 connectivity very cheaply - which helps us squeeze those
margins even more of course, then similarly we have to move. Quickly.
