Threeoperational cash flow focussed performance indexes are defined forrespectively an Internet operator or ISP, for the address domainowner, and for the end user. Special considerations are made andmodeling changes for mobile Internet traffic. The effects oftechnical innovation in the Internet services and protocols is takeninto account , as are special considerations for N.A.T. and contentowners. A numerical case is provided which mimics the current state ofthe Internet network and services ,and around which sensitivityanalysis can be carried out, or such that additional service modelscan be added. It establishes in the Case the relative advantages ordisadvantages of IPv4 and IPv6 for each of the three main parties,i.e. the ISP operator, the address domain owner, and the end user
