Amen.  Frustrating as it is.

I wonder if it would make a difference if big eyeballs ISPs ("among the
3 largest in a country") would start talking to content providers, telling them "hey, you know, your content is quite popular with our users, but since it's v4-only, we need to seriously throttle it to avoid overloading our CGN.  v6 goes unlimited, btw."...

just dreaming...

[Obo]: Nice idea :). However content is king and your customer hotline will turn red because of people blaming you as ISP.
