Here’s a chart from Akamai:

Akamai ipv6 in the US

I think this might have had to do with Charter / Spectrum or whatever they are called now after all the mergers. They enabled native IPv6 on their home cable internet services some time around there.

What this tells me is that more than 50% of the US traffic will be IPv6 by some time in 2018, and that’s a good thing, because it means we’ll see a rapid abandonment of ipv4 as it becomes a minority share.
