Barrier : ISPs treating IPv6 as a luxury
To add insult to injury, some ISPs are treating IPv6 as a premium or luxury service, rather than an eventual necessity. We , ourselves, needed an additional Internet connection, so we spoke to a popular UK based ISP - Easynet. They offered us a line, routed IPv4 subnet and also confirmed they could offer IPv6. Great... then they told us that there would be a £1000 (yes, £1000!) fee to enable IPv6 on the line. Yes, really, one thousand Pounds (Approximately US$1600). The world needs to move to IPv6 - ISPs should be at the forefront of promoting and encouraging that, not putting a £1000 tax hurdle in to discourage it.

What a great marketing opportunity for Plusnet. Launch IPv6 for everyone then run an advertising campaign saying Plusnet are £1000 cheaper than the equivalent service from Easynet! Grin Grin Grin

Jelv, don't go giving the marketing guys ideas.  They probably charge £990 and advertise it as £10 cheaper than Easynet!

I hope that's a one-off charge and not monthly  Lips_are_sealed
