Hurricane Electric Free IPv6 Tunnel Broker

The Hurricane Electric IPv6 Tunnel Broker service enables you to reach the IPv6 Internet by tunneling over existing IPv4 connections from your IPv6 enabled host or router to one of their IPv6 routers. To use this service you need to have an IPv6 capable host (IPv6 support is available for most platforms) or router which also has IPv4 (existing Internet) connectivity. their  tunnel service is oriented towards developers and experimenters that want a stable tunnel platform.

Sixxs Tunnelbroker

SixXS (Six Access) is a free, non-profit, non-cost service for Local Internet Registries (LIR’s) and endusers.
The main target is to create a common portal to help company engineers find their way with IPv6 networks deploying IPv6 to their customers in a rapid and controllable fashion. To reach these targets we are providing a whitelabel IPv6 Tunnel Broker and Ghost Route Hunter, an IPv6 route monitoring tool and various other services to help out where needed.

SixXS offers the RIPE, ARIN, APNIC, LacNIC and AfriNIC  communities pre-production deployment expertise based on the experience gathered while running the IPng IPv6 tunnel broker since 1999 combined with it’s successor, SixXS, totaling in more than 9 years of massive experience.

Most of the PoP’s are publicly available and provide free IPv6 connectivity to endusers allowing them to enjoy quality IPv6 connectivity. 10 Easy Steps to IPv6 describes how to quickly get going with IPv6.

Tele2 IPv6 transit

Tele2 has, in some degree, been IPv6 enabled since the beginning of 2002. In late 2007, the decision to implement IPv6 natively and alongside IPv4 in the network, was taken. Mid-2008 this was to a large extent complete and virtually all core nodes of Tele2s pan-european network are now IPv6 enabled. Some 90% (a number bound to fluctuate) of the IPv6 prefixes on the Internet can be reached via Tele2s customers or peers leaving Tele2 a very well connected network.

Networks to which Tele2 currently has an established physical path are eligible for IPv6 transit from Tele2, free of charge.
If you have your own address space and a physical interconnect with Tele2 (PNI / IX), please contact us to setup a BGP session

Google ramps up IPv6 mission, google.com a year away

Google has begun preaching the wonders of IPv6 in the hope more awareness will help expedite the transition from the legacy IPv4 networks most people use today.

During a presentation at this year’s linux.conf.au in Hobart, senior Google software engineer Angus Lees recalled how Google’s IPv6 efforts started as a covert, hobbyist project about two years ago and has gained enough momentum that a AAAA record for google.com could be added to Google’s DNS in a year.
