There is an French ISP named Nerim who provides native IPv6 connexions
on xDSL links and dial-up (not much used) since 2002-2003. Mostly
everything from servers and core network is dual stack, and while the
ISP is not as large as today's, it was the third DSL operator
in France by then.

XS4All (Netherlands) is providing the same service if I correctly remember.
