Anyone charging end users for IPv6 space yet? :p

Just wondering, with so many IPv6 resources in a single allocation it
would seem difficult to charge anything at all.

1. How are you making up loss of revenue on IPv4 assignments?

If revenue from IPv4 assignments is an issue, then the solution is to adjust your business model to not depend on that 
revenue.  As an ISP, the business is to ship bits around.

2. Are you charging anything?

Haven't ever charged for IPv6 allocations...

3. Is the cost built into the service?

The cost of IPv6 is so negligible (well unless you need advanced software licenses -- hi brocade), that I don't see any 
point in even accounting the cost of providing IPv6 into a service fee.

4. Do you assign IPv6 space to end user and charge admin fee?

By assign, do you mean SWIP?  Some places charge an admin fee to do a SWIP, but for setting up an allocation, I have 
never heard of an admin fee.
