Arbor's Network Infrastructure Security Research Report 2010
(http://www.arbornetworks.com/report) included an interesting tidbit 
also from IPv6 perspective:

Mobile and Fixed Wireless Operator Observations

"Figure 83 illustrates that 58 percent of respondents indicated that 
they intend to deploy IPv6 addressing for wireless subscriber
nodes within the next 12 months, while 42 percent have no plans to do 
so at this time. None of the respondents have deployed
IPv6 on their production mobile networks as of this writing."

(30% of total 111 respondents operate a mobile or fixed wireless 
network, and I assume the above 58% is of this about 33 respondents.)
