The Broadband Forum, (formerly DSL Forum) has included IPv6 in its
BroadbandSuite specification X.X which is intended to be released in
2009-2010. This covers DSL providers. In fact, many of the existing DSL
boxes have the technical capability to support IPv6 today because they
are Linux systems. They just have to install and test the software and
integrate it into their control panel.
