I know Verizon is rolling out v6 in some areas of their FiOS footprint. 
The router they provided supports it, but what I got from their customer 
service people was that they ran into some sort of issue with their TV
set-top boxes working properly with IPv6 or at least in a dual-stack 
environment.  At least that's where things stand in Pittsburgh.

I don't think they've provided training to their customer service people 
on IPv6 yet.  The rep I spoke with a few weeks ago told me I was the first 
customer that has asked her about it.

Looking forward to native v6 / dual-stack here...
