It's been an issuing weighing our our minds for a while. We've gone dual stack but getting it into the last mile (ADSL) is quite hard and running a tunnel server is ugly.

Main issue is BRAS support from our vendor as well as ADSL CPE under US$100 (eg. not Cisco 8xx series).
Quite, I think OSS/BSS is going to be a bigger challenge than actually moving the IPv6 packets.
Moving packets is pretty easy. We went to dual stack in the core in just a couple of months for a network spanning 3 continents. Getting our customer management systems and BRASes talking IPv6 is going to take a lot longer. Getting our systems group to IPv6 enable resolvers, dns etc is also taking longer than it should.
