Submission + - Proof IPv6 Will Never Take Over (ripe.net) 1

mindbuilder writes: Internet Service Providers can today get IPv4 addresses for all their customers practically for free (except recently in the APNIC region). Yet the ISPs still put hundreds of thousands of users behind NAT. They do this to spite the extra equipment costs of NAT. If they're willing to pay extra to NOT give customers IP addresses, Why would they want to pay extra to upgrade their systems and give away IPv6 addresses, any time soon?
