I think that you've got a bit of a logic fault here.  You seem to be assuming that because you can't find any external any sign of Verizon preparing for IPv6, that they're definitely not doing so.

Maybe they are, maybe they aren't (your -guess- is as good as mine), but that process is not necessarily going to be broadcast to the entire world.  Especially after the earlier thread via customer IPv6 rollouts by ISPs, I think it should be fairly evident that there can be nontrivial "backend" plumbing work needed to get things IPv6 ready, not all of which is necessarily going to be inherently customer-visible for all stages of progress.

so if they don't deploy IPv6 then ('extremely high growth period'),
when will they? I don't presume to speak for everyone who immediately
felt that tinge of surprise at reading of a /9 being allocated, but
the blame is being laid on vzw not doing something other than 'can we
have a /9 please?' --not ARIN and/or it's policies (another mailing
list, duly noted)
