Issue? It was more of an observation than an issue. Based on the CAIDA
Internet connectdness maps which show AS701 as the most connected AS in
the core of the Internet, combined with other Verizon networks, it seems
to me that Verizon's progress is the most interesting to watch. When
Verizon has full availability of IPv6 access (all ASes, all PoPs) then I
see that as a tipping point.
