Because of money, isn't it? I don't want to pay twice!

As I fully implement IPv6 on my net, I got a HUGE impact already. That's
the problem.

So as this is not a bug, but a long time story - I relized for me as a
cutomer connectivity from both Hurricane Electric and Cogent is a crap.
So people should avoid both, and buy for example from Level3 and NTT,
which do not have such problem and do not sell me partial connectivity
without any warning before signing the contract.

I'm just a IP transit customer, and I don't give a something for that
wars who is the real Tier1. I just want a working service for my money
instead of answering a hundreds calls from my subscribers!
