«True IPv6» is a prerequisite for 464XLAT, so this statement does not
really make any sense.

That said, Telenor was not the first. I think that award might go to
Verizon Wireless in the United States. I am not certain, but they
definitively arrived earlier to the IPv6 party than Telenor did at

Telenor did initially launch 464XLAT for a small number of UEs, but
this approach was abandoned in favour of dual stack. Their deployment
is currently just shy of 75% IPv6 according to my own measurements:

There's also another small Norwegian PLMN called Ice that has rolled
out IPv6. As far as I've been told they are also using dual stack, not
