Hey, I am a rural Telco with a /18..  are you calling me a "Major
Player"?  gee thanks..  now stand back and watch my head swell..  

By the way, all my edge and core routers are IPv6 ready, and most of my
core and internal switches are IPv6 capable, even though many hosts are
not and when I checked last week neither of my two 'tier two' nor my one
'tier three' upstreams are ready to provide me with IPv6 routing.  As a
small ISP in rural America I can only assume that the larger and metro
ISP's are in at least as good of shape as we are for the transition.

Best regards,
