That's not very persuasive since even their v6 only prices are pretty
high. Gandi charges $13.10 for 1GB RAM and 20GB disk. Amazon will
give you 1GB RAM and 40GB of disk and a v4 address for $5/mo. I like
Gandi just fine but those v6 VPS only make sense as a back end to
something else. It will be a very long time until there are public
services that anyone cares about on v6 only.
There are perfectly good reasons to use v6: no NAT in front of your
devices, every service gets its own IP, better connections to devices
on mobile networks and home networks that are behind v4 NATs.
