You want IPv6. But your ISP doesn't offer it. So what do you do? You create a tunnel.

[edit] How to choose

It doesn't really matter as much who you get a IPv6 tunnel from compared to where.

Ideally you want to ping the tunnel brokers IPv6 tunnel point and find out how long it takes for a package to get back and forth; this delay will be added to every IPv6 packet - so you want it as small as possible. The closest tunnel broker (less ping to their POP) is generally the best choice.

[edit] International tunnel brokers

  • SixXS - Six Access
    • Major operation with Points of Presence in Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Slovenia, Portugal and the United States of America.
    • Known to be a very stable service until you suddenly get your SixXS account closed for no apparent reason (which eventually happens if you host a subversive website, write something negative about SixXS, etc)
    • Reverse DNS works
    • Uses a "credit" system. Uptime is rewarded with credits. The credits can be used to "buy" subnets and other goodies.
    • Accept RIPE, ARIN, APNIC, LACNIC, AFRINIC and their own SIXXS handles.
    • SixXS are known to close tunnels for no reason, and also close tunnels used to host websites with legal, but politically incorrect information. SixXS seem to support fascism and are generally hostile towards free speech.

  • SCC.net
    • Instant IPv6 tunnel which gives you a fast IPv6 connection, ideal for NextGenTel, Telenor, Lyse & other major Norwegian ISP's.
    • Does not give you a /48 or /64. No. You only get a /124 (a hand-full of IP's).

[edit] Portugal

Check ipv6tb: an implementation of the IPv6 Tunnel Broker for BSD software if you already have IPv6 and want to become a broker yourself.

[edit] Singapore

[edit] Switzerland

[edit] Thailand

[edit] US

  • Hurricane Electric - http://tunnelbroker.net/
    • Gives you /48 and /64 prefixes.
    • Stable, fast, numerous points of presence around the world.
    • Hurricane Electric is IRC blocked until or unless you pass their IPv6 exam. This seems to be a way to herd people into taking their exam. The exam should be very easy for people who know what IRC is, so this should not be an issue (I aced it at my first attempt).
    • Highly recommended.
  • freenet6.net
    • US Operation with a nice client for dynamic IPs
