Who are the 3%?

Given the lack of CPE support, does that roughly 3% of Comcast's customers have their computers plugged directly into their cable modems with no router or device in between?

Every single current model from Linksys is IPv6 Enabled. From their barebones basic $40 router to their $200 AC router, all 7 models are compatible.

There is not a lack of CPE support. Almost every router from the major brands has v6 support out of the box now and most of the routers sold over the last 2-3 years has newer firmware with v6 support. ISPs will be rolling out firmware upgrades for their own provided CPE as Comcat has/will be doing.

The 3% is a pretty even split between standalone computers and routers that support IPv6. There is a shift we are seeing however, meaning more routers appearing compared to standalone computers.
