For a while we were in a similar setup with HE - free BGP tunnel for our 
/48 to our provider who didn't have native IPv6 at the time.  Turnaround 
time for issues was a few hours at most (if even that), and their 
knowledgeable BGP people helped us with some annoying/aggravating ARIN 
policies that initially prevented us from getting an AS number.

So, maybe I'm biased in singing their praises.  Its the little things 
that make all the difference, IMHO.
