I'm writing an article where I want to say that but I can't find an
article I can reference to back it up.

I don't want to accidentally encourage an urban legend or rumor.  (For
example, I can't find verification to the rumor that ARIN rejected a
request from LTE providers for IPv4 space and instead told them to go
straight to IPv6.  I do others in this thread saying that native IPv4
on LTE is common, so unless someone can give me evidence, I'll have to
update that part of the article.  OMG i'd love to make that point;
anyone have proof?).

I could, instead, write, "most carriers will probably roll IPv6 out as
part of their 4G upgrade" but that sounds wishy-washy.

Thanks in advance,
Tom
