same diff, if its in DE then it would be local, I mean FFS, I have a box
in London and it has 6ms pings to Frankfurt, I cant even equal that from
my city, Brisbane, to say Sydney, the best there is 9-11ms, that's 995
km's away.

I also have a box in L.A.  it purports to be a national U.S. host
service, however we do not have access to IPv6.

bullshit, I'd say before two years, if they are out of IPv4's

That we do agree on.

I certainly hope you dont take googles word as gospel, it might be a
"very rough" guide though.

I'd say that's an over estimation, but yeah, in AU, a service provider
can get no more than a /22 for past year, and that's it, not
multiple /22's, so basically for hosting services, if they didn't get in
early and stockpile, you're fine for shared hosting, you can stuff
thousands of hosts on one IP, but pretty much forget SSL customers, and
as for end user SP's, well, yeah, forget it, only the big players have
stockpiles of IPv4 for DSL/Cable/3G users, if someone wanted to start up
a new ISP here, it is hopeless now, unless you want to NAT all your
customers :) which might be acceptable for 3G, but not for "always on"
DSL etc...
