Hello Nanog,

Looks like Level3's only IPv6 route to HE is via London right now:

Confirmed by L3's looking glasses (
http://lg.level3.net/traceroute/traceroute.cgi?site=lvg1&target=www.he.net&ipv6=true
) and my own corporate IPv6 connection from Level 3.

I opened a ticket with Level 3. Anyone else seen this?
