The USA is so large, it is hard to get the new technology backbone in place. Some European countries have broadband fiber optics to the home. Also, I have seen tech shows talking about how "open" the market is for competition for the broadband market, like dial-up once was. Competition made the pricing and speeds for an area to be much better for the user. My area of New York State has two plans; Cable modem or DSL. I have the cable modem since DSL was a higher price for less service. I am signed up for 15 MB/s download and 1 MB/s upload, but I rarely get more than 2 MB/s download and 0.150 MB/s upload. There is not competition, really, to get the service provider to update the "node" in my area to give me the service I actually paid for. DSL is even worse, the last time I had that service.

As for IPv6, well I really wonder when we will have it locally. Actually, I have not found any affordable routers that advertise that they can deal with IPv6. Under $75 or so is affordable to some, but I have not seen any under $400 so far, the last time I bought a router [a month or so ago]. So if you cannot get the equipment for your home/office for IPv6, then there is no real need for the service providers to provide the IPv6 service, correct?

I really hope this changes though. We need IPv6 backbone and home/office equipment "soon". I think if the equipment and backbone were available, then the local service providers would start the move to get the needed equipment to provide it to the service users.

  Unless I am incorrect, the EU is far more ahead on IPv6 than we are in
N.America. Is this correct? My ISP does not feel enough pressure yet to
make any changes in the very near future.

this depends, I think. In the mobile market, T-Mobile USA alreay runs Dual
Stack, whereas T-Mobile Germany doesn't plan it before 2014. Even major
dialup ISPs (DSL/cable) are hesitant, and only a few offer native IPv6. So,
it's not a nice situation over here either...

  Tunnelling for me will have to be the only option. I checked around and
the other local ISP's are pretty well saying the same thing, unless you
go to the more expensive providers.

For an easy start, I recommend SiXXS, because of their AICCU tool, that
helps tunnelling. :)
