For FiOS, the ONTs do transparent muckery at the IP level and aren't yet 
capable of equivalent IPv6 muckery.  Verizon is also quite confident 
they don't actually have to do anything about it.  Instead, they'll just 
roll out 6RD relays like Qwest/Centurylink did.  You didn't REALLY need 
a 1480 MTU, did you?

For Comcast business services, the SMC box on my demarc panel isn't IPv6 
capable and neither are any of Comcast's other business CPE.
