Might be a lot of work involved, might be recouping costs for previous
work, might be a 5 minute job that requires going up and down the chain and
therefore costing the company such a setup fee.
As Mark suggested "Why are you people continuing to reward providers of
IPv4-only transit by giving them money?". Maybe suggest to them that you
will move to another provider, that might get them to drop the setup fee
(which I assume must be substantial?)?
