Kudos to Rogers Wireless on IPv6 deployment

So frequently on this list we hear people asking/begging their providers 
for IPv6 roadmaps or chastising them for the lack of same, that I thought 
it might be nice to actually give props to a provider actually moving the 
needle.

I was pleasantly surprised today to notice an IPv6 address on my Android 
smartphone on the Rogers Wireless LTE network.  I had to do a double-take 
and poke through test-ipv6.com to make sure something wasn't amiss, but 
there it was: honest-to-$deity dual stack service on a Canadian mobile 
provider, with a dual-stack resolver and everything! ;)

So, kudos, Rogers Wireless!

So that's Rogers on the wireless side (with Telus Mobility at last check 
being in early stages but not yet fully rolled out), and basically Rogers, 
Telus and a bunch of smaller or regional ISPs that have deployed IPv6 on 
residential and/or business wired service.  Shaw?  Bell?  (FYI Bell, your 
IPv6 Starter Kit linked from http://ipv6.bell.ca/ currently hits a 404.
