I recently had a good experience with IPv6 being available for large number of
consumers in Finland. The country went from minimal (to be honest, embarrassing)
level of IPv6 deployment to quite decent numbers in a matter of weeks, and
the trend seems to continue.

This inspired me to think about changes in the Internet and when they take
long and when they can be sudden. Here are my thoughts on the topic:
