We have fios for some office locations and can't get jack out of our
sales rep; just the same well it's being tested bs.  It's as if the only
people at VZ that know IPv6 went to the wireless side, where I can do
native dual stack all day long on my phone, tablet and hotspot, but the
Fios folks have absolutely no clue.  It's really quite annoying.  Even a
wait 24 months would be better than nothing at all.

So I was curious, has anyone managed to penetrate the black hole that
appears to be surrounding any actual details on Verizon FIOS IPv6
deployment? Their last official announcement indicated they would start
deploying it in 2012, and clearly that didn't happen. I've been asking
on and off for a couple of years, and never been able to get any actual
answer as to when it might be available or why it is being so delayed.
Comcast has, which evidently tells you when you're
going to get it, if you don't *already* have it. From what I can tell,
most large providers, if not already providing it, at least have some
reasonable timeline as to their progress...
