I'll second that--I've had native v6 connectivity with Layer42 at home, with a
secondary path via HE tunnelbroker via a secondary physical path for many,
many moons, and have had no complaints.
For those with smaller-sized connectivity needs, it's likely you'll have better
success getting v6 connectivity from a tier-2 provider, as there's less non-v6-
compliant hardware and software that needs to be taken into consideration.
There's also likely to be some level of impedance mismatch between the
upgrade priority for high-bandwidth-customer gear and low-bandwidth-customer
gear at large-sized ISPs, which may relegate you to a slower deployment
scheduled than if you bring the question up with your local tier 2 provider.
