What real benefits can IPv6 bring to end users?

End users don't really care what transport protocol they use. What they want is connectivity and mobility. In the long term only IPv6 will be able to support all the new mobile devices and services that are emerging. This is due to a) the demand this will create for IP addresses and b) to the advanced mobility features of IPv6.
