Re: European ISP enables IPv6 for all?
Apparently, from what I have gathered from other french people, Free has rolled out a variation of 6to4 using their own prefix instead of the well known 2002::/16. As they control their home gateway, this was fairly easy for them to do and did not require much core infrastructure change. The apparent benefit is that they control the routing of the return packets and thus do not need to worry about packets going through Palo Alto, Switzerland or Korea (well known 6to4 relays) on their way back from the 'native' IPv6 Internet... - Alain.
