Of course there was no operator before it was mandated in the standard - 
didn't stop the operators from still not offering *when* it was.

(As for upstream connectivity: ISPs were offering commercial IPv6 service
15 years ago already - not all of them, but if you *wanted*, you could
get it.  So that's all a very lame excuse to just ignoring the mandatory
bit of the standard for 10+ years)
