This might be so in Norway. In German customer portals the gamers mostly 
demand ipv4 (public ipv4 address to their home) instead of DS-Lite. They 
have already native IPv6 but avm was forced to allow "teredo" over DS 
and DS-lite - because xbox has problems with native IPv6.

xbox is no good example for *wanting* IPv6.
