RE: IPv6 End User Fee

By end user I mean hosting clients (cloud, collocation, shared, dedicated, VPS, etc.) of any sort. For example you have 
clients that would need....say /24 for their dedicated server. If you charge a $1.00/IP which is typical then you would 
lose that revenue if they converted to IPv6. If you didn't charge for IPv4 then you have nothing to to lose.

Anyone charging end users for IPv6 space yet? :p


I can't imagine that this would be anything but counterproductive.  End users are not interested in IPv6 - most would 
not recognize IPv6 if it fell out of their screen.  End users want working connectivity, not jargon.
