Supporting Skeeve on this - some of you will have seen Akamai turned on IPv6 in April
(https://www.networkworld.com/news/2012/032612-akamai-ipv6-257634.html), including
v4-to-v6 translation of content.
The Akamai IPv6 traffic stats (http://www.akamai.com/ipv6) are embarrassingly
intermittant for Australia though.

... and lots of good marketing available, nationally and internationally, for those
that also switch on IPv6 permanently in June :-)
