Japan and South Korea are doing quite well indeed and China has CERNET
of course which is doing mostly IPv6.

There are some ISPs in various other Asian countries doing IPv6, but I
guess indeed that they don't push that much traffic, but counting that
is hard to tell anyway.

Can you divulge some of these hurdles? Would be interesting to know what
they are running into.
