For accessing Internet content, this is what the stats compiled by a Cisco intern shows, see: http://6lab.cisco.com/stats/

If you hover over a country, the 'content' figure shows the percentage of traffic that would be IPv6 if the client were IPv6 capable.  That figure is commonly pushing 50%, not because 50% of content providers offer IPv6, but because based on what a typical home user does, 50% of that content (Google, FB, YouTube etc) is available via IPv6.
