Who is your upstream provider?

I think you're confused on how the IP transit industry works.

If you want choices in your transit providers, you should get a transport 
circuit (dark, wave or EPL) to a nearby carrier hotel/data center.  Once
you do that, you will suddenly find that virtually almost everyone in the
competitive IP transit market will provide you with dual-stacked IPv4/IPv6

If you are buying DIA circuit from some $isp to your rural location that
you call "head-end" and are expecting to receive a competitive service,
and support for IPv6, well, then your expectations are either unreasonable, 
ignorant or both.
