ipv6 transit over tunneled connection

Native IPv6 is a crapshoot.  About the only people in the US that I've seen that are no-bullshit IPv6 native ready is Hurricane Electric.  NTT is supposedly as well but I can't speak as to where they have connectivity.

Being that there's issues that leave us unable to get native connectivity, we have a BGP tunnel thanks to HE (with a 20ms latency from Seattle to Freemont).

Tunnels suck if not done correctly.  We sometimes have faster and more reliable connections through IPv6, so ymmv.

I'm curious what providers have not gotten their IPv6 plans/networks/customer ports enabled.

I know that Comcast is doing their trials now (Thanks John!) and will be presenting at the upcoming NANOG about their experiences.

What parts of the big "I" Internet are not enabled or ready?
