Do most providers charge an extra fee to run dual-stack?

I'm talking to my current ISP about IPv6 migration, and I'd like to know whether service providers typically charge you to run dual-stack or not. Should I expect Internet service providers to charge extra for any other IPv6 migration costs?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

They will probably charge you a setup fee to cover allocating the block to you, and the router configuration changes. At least the two colo’s that I was looking at this is what they said.

    Service Providers should not charge for the allocation of addresses at all. You pay for the bandwidth not addresses. Having said that if you are already a customer of said ISP and you want to add IPv6 and run dual stack then they will most likely charge for the reconfiguration of the service and class it as a Move, Add or Change (MAC).

    [...] But what about any unavoidable charges or hidden fees from service providers for running IPv6 transition technologies, such as dual-stack? That was actually the first angle I explored after I ran across one IT pro’s answer to that question on our ITKE forums. [...]

    The ISP's in my area dont charge for dual-stacking. Its a native service on their devices, and enabling it on an interface should be done during provisioning. One more line of code, or an extra mouse-click, really shouldnt be "charge-able"...
