Cogent IPv6

Here in the Netherlands we got it 'free' (i.e. dual-stack on top of the 
IPv4 transit without extra cost)
But we're currently looking into an alternative for a provider with 
non-broken IPv6 transit and cancel our contract with Cogent.

They called us once asking how satisfied we were with their IPv6 
transit. After bringing up the HE issue the conversation ended 
surprisingly fast. The Google depeering thing was the final straw, all 
our transits can provide a reasonably complete IPv6 prefix table, except 
for Cogent.
