We're an LTE operator and this is the first time I've heard about this.
LTE supports IPv4 and IPv6 and as far as I can discern, that is a
requirement, and there is no "hackery" to get IPv4 running.
We have yet to see any LTE terminals (USB dongels so far) that support
IPv6. There are a lot of other kinks to work out first, going IPv6 only
here is definitely not the place. Remember, a lot of people buying this
service is taking the USB dongle and attaching it to their corporate XP
