Dear Ca By:

1)    It appears that you are reading the Google graph too 
optimistically, or incorrectly. That is, the highest peaks of the graph 
are about 38%. The average of the graph is about 36%. Citing "over 40%" 
from these is a gross exaggeration. In fact, the peaks were reached on 
weekends and holidays due to more residential usage, you can clearly see 
such by zooming into the graph. In addition, the graph has been 
exhibiting an asymptomatic trend ever since a few years back. The 
COVID-19 pushed this graph up a bit due to the lock-down and 
work-from-home factors. Below was an analysis pre-pandemic:


2)    Since Google is one of the stronger IPv6 promoters, usage of IPv6 
outside of the Google domain can only be lower, by simple logic deduction.

Ah, the quarterly ipv6 thread? where i remind you all? most of the USA is
on ipv6 (all your smartphone, many of your home router, a growing amount of
your clouds [i see you aws])


Google sees over 40% of their users on ipv6, with superior latency
