Strongly disagree in yet additional government intrusion into private 
market, the individuals right to choose what to build sell or purchase 
is part of your freedom to live how you choose. Dont take it for granted.

In reality, the Internet is ipv4 with some IPv6 overlap and nothing 
interesting IPv6 only. Let labeling and advertising be truth controlled, 
not propaganda driven. Disagree.

Not opposed. However, in reality, this just becomes a checkbox the likes 
we have seen before, and it costs money that might have been better 
spent elsewhere, like in actually delivering broadband.

There is only one effective and acceptable approach to deploying IPv6 
any quicker than is happening now, and that is to focus on providing 
tangible benefit to its users now, today.
