The big guys in my area - Charter and AT&T - can do IPv6.

But I understand that not every ISP has the talent to deploy IPv6. A lot 
of people simply refuse to learn new things as they get older. The 
smaller the company gets it can go either way: steadfast refusal to 
learn new things, or jumps at the chance to learn something new. The 
former will try to say customers don't want it or no business case to 
hide their knowledge gap.
