I meant to ask. Did you ask akamai why they would be charging for ipv6? Is there any logical reason other than just wanting to make little more money, that makes them have to charge for ipv6?

I quoted their response in my mail; sorry if that wasn't clear.  They
offered to enable IPv6 service for a non-trivial monthly recurring fee,
which they offered to send me a revised contract to include.

I was surprised to find that wasn't the case.
