Comcast (at least in my area) gives out up to a /60 to
residential customers (if requested by the IA-PD option),
although the default is /64.  As I understand it, there
was an issue earlier in the year (in one of their vendors
software) that forced them to only offer a /64 for a time.
I seem to recall that they stated two/three months
ago that "most" areas now support /60 requests.

I still think a /60 is too small for future home networking,
and I hope to see at least a /56 at some point.
