I echo the 'good luck' and ditto on the experience.

There's a lot of people anxious to get IPv6 on FIOS, but there seems to
be precious little movement over there.

We've been bitching at our sales rep for years, as we've added circuits, and haven't gotten even empty promises; just the same endless Verizon BS about "it's being tested in select markets" although no one has ever been able to prove that to be the case.  You definitely get static IP's on business connections; that's just a matter of how much you pay and how many you need.

I've read rumors about business class customers who really work their phone sex getting native ipv6, and I also heard somethin about static ip's. So I'll try that, and also mention that "we're transitioning our employees who remote in from home to FIOS but we'd like ipv6 for ... VPN purposes, NAT traversal, etc ..." I mean, that should get them a little wet right?
