Perhaps you missed my quote:

"Cogent's official stance on IPv6 is that we will deploy IPv6 when it
becomes a commercial necessity. We have tested IPv6 and we have our plan
for rolling it out, but there are no commercial drivers to spend money
to upgrade a network to IPv6 for no real return on investment."

This came rom a contact at Cogent (not sure of the role, probably sales rep).
