And which ISP's own DNS servers support IPv6?

Speaking of the internet, did anyone watch The Gadget Show episode where they were testing O2's new 4G connection and they tried it in a park and they got 87mbps? It's coming out in 2013

Well; apparently I'm not ready but sorta ready (according to the IPv6 test posted here).

According to it my current stuff will keep working after the launch but I don't have an IPv6 address as of yet.

Pretty sure my routers support IPv6 (I'm assuming it's just my ISP that hasn't given us an IPv6 address yet or something like that).

The way I understand it IPv6 will kick in for new sites in June, and the major changeover will come six months later...

Heh, yes, that was the original myth ... I was just humorously twisting it around to fit this topic.

When I Googled for anything regarding Cox Cable's ipv6 status, it simply said that they were working on it. However, the only specific problem that the Netalyzer mentioned with this protocol was what appears to be a backbone carrier that Cox is using, so I'm not sure how that stacks up.
