if at all possible, buy transport to an IXP and buy your transit without any
kind of transport lock-in.  that way if your provider doesn't offer you what
you need (good pricing, good support, services like ipv6, and so on) you can
add a link to a provider who will offer those things.

if it's not possible, you can still sample the ipv6 technology using tunnels,
which is how a lot of us got started, both for transit and in our interiors,
before native ipv6 was available.  hurricane electric, for example, runs a
tunnel broker and i think i remember that it's free of charge.
