Re: IPv6 Transit?

  • Date: Mon Apr 10 12:15:25 2006

Hi Mat,

I'm not sure what providers are already present in your area, may be will be
easier if you mention some of the choices you have.

In general I will say that you can rely on companies such as Global
Crossing, Teleglobe, NTT/Verio, Tiscali, Sparkle/Seabone, TIWS, OpenTransit,
Cable&Wireless, etc. (they are not in any specific preference order, just as
they come to my mind right now).

But there are many more. I'm actually trying to have a web page with a
listing of all the IPv6-ready Telcos and ISPs in the world. Some information
is available at
and for IXs at,
but not updated at the time being.

The updated web page will be ready, hopefully, next week, and I will be
happy to get all the people which already provides IPv6 services, contacting
me with a URL to a page that describe the available services, so we can make
sure they are included in that web page.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation on that !
