I wish we could, but as long as the service is user driven, and it 
basically is the product and sales people selling the service, it is 
almost as hard to persuade them as it is to persuade the content provider. 

However, in Norway there are some movement on the content side as the 
government has started to show real interest on implementing IPv6. They 
are working on changing the procurement procedures to demand IPv6 on all 
IT investments for the public sector. So hopefully, they will help to show 
the other big content providers that it is time to move.
