I know of a few regional ISPs that don't (yet) support IPv6.

As far as carriers go, some seem to support it readily, and others seem 
like they're being dragged into it kicking and screaming.  With the IPv4 
well running dry in some sense, the people who aren't supporting it yet 
will have to realize sooner or later that they're swimming against the 
tide.

In some organizations, that's an organizational problem.  In others, it 
just means you got the wrong salesdroid...
