Yes. It does say it's broken. However it's entirely possible that AT&T 
hands out different routes to their l33t enterprise/govt customers with 
t1 or better who pay real money, vs end users.

From:

Remote Access Service to IPv6 Internet

     * Support IPv6 for small (or satellite) locations and individual 
remote users
     * Reach a dynamically configurable IPv6 Tunnel Gateway through IPv4 
ISPs through fractional T1, DSL or dial-up access
     * The Tunnel Setup Protocol (TSP) will be used to create tunnels to 
transport IPv6 traffic over an IPv4 network to the gateway


Granted that doesn't necessarily mean it's in the United States, but I'm 
guessing it would be due to being an offering targeted at the United 
States Government. :)


Hence my request for more comments/information.

Maybe off topic for NANOG but then what does that even mean anymore? :)
