I think you are saying your ISP isn't providing IPv6 support at all and
that you'd like to totally disable IPv6. If that is the case then you
can do this by adding ipv6.disable=1 to the kernel boot parameters in grub.

I decided to do a test and add ipv6.disable=1 to the kernel parameter on
one of my VM's. In the past, this was sufficient. However, doing only
this now results in selinux errors. To avoid those you also need to add
"net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1" to /etc/sysctl.conf.
