Verizon has deployed IPv6 on their LTE network. This is a screenshot of an LTE-attached netbook. You can clearly see the IPv6 address:

Back in 2009, I reported that Verizon mandated IPv6 support in LTE devices. It's good to see that they've taken the next step and enabled IPv6 on their network, and that they're doing so with globally routable addresses. On a personal note, I'm quite happy about this, as Verizon is slated to bring LTE to State College by mid-year. This will probably be enough to get me to jump ship to Verizon and pick up a Droid Bionic.
