I know of at least one mobile provider in Sweden, Finland and Germany that 
have IPv6 enabled for at least part of their device base.

Some have chosen IPv4v6 (providing dual stack) which means they can do 
this with Apple devices today, some are IPv6 only which means they're like 
T-Mobile waiting for the Apple App universe to come around to being IPv6 
only supporting.

North America is by far the leader in number of IPv6 enabled customers 


shows. However, things are happening all across the world now... I 
wouldn't be surprised if we're already in the 100-300M IPv6 enabled 
devices range by now...
