Providing IPv6 can increase perceived reliability for customers via the
Happy Eyeballs algorithm <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Eyeballs>.

If the IPv4 and IPv6 paths from client to server are different (as they
often are), clients can bypass bad IPv4 network paths to a server if
IPv6 is also available. This avoids some "I can't connect to website X"
support calls, decreasing costs.
