Yes and no…
I think you are right about facebook.
However, I think eventually the residential ISPs are going to start charging extra
for IPv4 service. Some residences may pay for it initially, but if they think there’s a
way to move away from it and the ISPs start fingerpointing to the specific laggards,
you’ll see a groundswell of consumers pushing to find alternatives.
