There is nothing to indicate that ISPs are going to change their business
models simply because IPv6 address space is plentiful; they charge extra for
two hosts because it is assumed two hosts consume more bits than one, not
because a second IPv4 address is hard to come by.
This is not the least bit believable.
It's quite believable, in the context of an industry where some providers
don't want you to use a VPN from your home to your office unless you've bought
the "business class" service for $50/mo more, and others are doing various
bait-and-switch, advertising a fast connection and then capping the actual
throughput because they haven't provisioned sufficient backbone to support
the advertised rate...
