Last time we renegotiated transit contracts, we specified IPv6 as an
absolute requirement. *Native* IPv6 was an added plus. As it turned
out, two of our chosen transit providers could deliver native IPv6
from day one, and the third a few months later.

Native IPv6 availability was one of several factors used to make the
decision between transit providers.
