Unfortunately, "those who have bothered to implement it" appear to be
commercially inconsequential in the residential and mobile broadband markets.
According to Andrew Cushen's recent blog post (at http://tinyurl.com/nvdxgh2
Vodafone and Callplus (= Orcon and Slingshot) between them own 94% of the residential
broadband market, and of them Orcon says it has a 'trial' IPv6 offering, all the
others Just Say No.
Vodafone, Spark and two Degrees of course own 100% of the mobile broadband market, and
none of them appear to offer IPv6.
I'm afraid that v6 traffic is going to continue to be down amongst the noise until
either Vodafone or Spark come to the IPv6 party

Agreed! Back-pats to those who have bothered to implement it. I know I base my purchasing
decisions on it's availability.
FWIW we went through a process of finding co-lo package providers that would provide IP
space, bandwidth and physical hosting for our PBX equipment around 12 months ago and one
of the pre-requisites was the ability to provision us IPv6 space. I was disappointed to
find that only 3 of the 10 NZ providers we approached were able to offer it! Most said
"it's on the roadmap, but not yet". Some just said "no".
In the end we selected two of the providers that could, and we are very happy with the
service from both. Hat tips to both Vibe and Unleash/Solarix; your IPv6 support was a
significant part of what got you our custom :)
Server colo (or VPS') are a different market than home DSL or UFB, but I think it
could be interesting & useful to have some sort of matrix of IPv6 availability in that
sector too. And 'business' UFB/HSNS/VSDL etc too for that matter. I do hope my 30%
hit rate isn't an accurate indicator...

Nice work by FX. Keep it up.
(and good work to the others that are offering IPv6 as compiled by Lindsay's list -
also good work)
