Yesterday, Telenor launched LTE.

So. With a green-field deployment, in their home market (supposed to be
the first of their tree-digit million subscribers world-wide to get all
the cool new tech), built on 3GPP specs that fully supports IPv6,
already proven to work by other pioneers (^5 VzW), for which there
are plenty of compatible devices (again, ^5 VzW), and plenty of
compatible content (^5 ISOC, et al.), four months after World IPv6
Launch (in which they participated), and one month after their RIR ran
out of IPv4 addresses...launching without IPv6 support was a perfectly
natural and sensible thing for them to do, it seems.

*sigh*
