Hello all,

While not really Africa specific, an interesting fact about IPv6
adoption globally.
In case you didn't know, Microsoft's Xbox One not only supports native
IPv6 fully, but prefers IPv6.

Microsoft have stated that the best Xbox One experience would be on a
native IPv6 enabled connection.

Xbox's communicate to one another using p2p and with the Xbox One, will
look for native Ipv6 first, then try Teredo, and only attempt to use
plain old IPv4 if neither IPv6 nor Teredo are operable. [2]

So, if you thought big global players where not betting on IPv6, or you
thought that those implementing IPv6 where doing so at ISP or enterprise
level only, then think again!
