As far as vendors go, I've seen the same thing on our end, I'm pretty 
sure none of our CPE supports it as of yet, the only thing that does is 
our routers. I would like to say that Imagestream has been great as far 
as getting us updated with IPv6 tools,  their engineers are working on 
quite a few exciting things that I think are going to help the migration 
of IPv6 into our network.

We just got our allocation last Friday, I think out of all of our 
upstreams, only 2 do IPv6 on their own backbone. And honestly I'm a bit 
worried to contact one of them..  they're going to want to charge us for it.
