If you're by this referring to single IPv6 PDP context customers, then at 
least tens of millions, perhaps a few hundreds of millions.

https://getipv6.info/display/IPv6/3GPP+Mobile+Networks

"... IPv6-only (e.g. T-Mobile USA, Orange Poland, Telenor Norway) PDP/PDN 
bearers. "

I know at least T-Mobile USA uses this approach, and I'd imagine they have 
tens of millions of customers just there.
