Update this page with the results of "Call Your ISP for IPv6", so we can get an idea of what the latest results are. We are interested in when you called, what their response was, what timelines were and did they even know what IPv6 was.

If you got a response indicate the date, when you got the response. If you didn't check for the information, just leave the cell empty. If IPv6 matters and you have the option, vote with your wallet and move to a forward thinking ISP.

This list is intended to cover any service provider that provides Internet connectivity, including (but not limited to) DSL, cable, fiber, wireless, cellular and satellite.

Canada Rogers Rogers began rolling out native IPv6 in March 2016. They announced that the roll out to their network is complete. They are in the process of updating customer router firmware for IPv6 but anyone running their own IPv6 capable router behind a bridged Rogers router should be running IPv6 now.

Czech Republic I2Net No No No Promised four years ago, stopped replying to further urges
Czech Republic O2 Yes (/64 only) IPv6 on xDSL lines only, not yet for mobile broadband. It's impossible to ask for a shorter routed prefix for home connections. Lines after 2012-07-01 don't get public IPv4 for free, only a CGNATed one.

They provide some sort of 6rd for consumer connections. Presumably that was their excuse to participate in the "National IPv6 launch", which mandated rollout. cf. IPv6 in Finland
Finland Sonera Yes if you are using their IPTV solution "Sonera Viihde". Native IPv6 support for all home users promised soon. (in finnish)
France Free Yes

Germany 1und1 Yes, /56 for adsl (2016-06-25)

Yes for vdsl (2016-04-17)

2016-04-17: native IPv6 on vdsl running here (major German city) for quite some time (w/o user notice or online documentation - personal experience, no call sent) 2016-06-25: I just enabled ipv6 on my fritzbox 7412 and got an /56 right away. I did not have any communication with 1und1 beforehand.

2016-04-17: latest ipv6 entry in official 1&1 blog is from 2012.

unknown date: ticket support wants to handout ipTV on questions for ipv6. Later somehow competent guy told me they give out ipv6 for vdsl only. And you need a bit of luck.

Germany Congstar No No No According to IPv6-Unterstützung? mobile users can get IPv6. But according to Freigabe von IPv6 bei Festnetz-Anschlüssen and IPv6 ist 20 Jahre alt … wann gibt's das bei congstar? there are currently no plans to support IPv6 via DSL.
Germany easybell no ETA no technical details (size of prefix, etc...) available for endcustomers; VoIP accessible via IPv6
Germany Klaus Internet Service GmbH available by default, static or dynamic available by default, static or dynamic they use DTAG infrastructure except for a some very few places were they have their own gear
Germany Deutsche Glasfaser yes yes IPv4 only via CGNAT
Germany Kevag-Telekom No  ?  ? DS-Lite planned but no date for release as per aug 2016
Germany MK Netzdienste GmbH & Co. KG  ?  ? available by default DTAG infrastructure, superb support, open for special requests like proper transfer network, bgp, snmp access for cpe, vdsl 100/40, etc
Germany o2 no no  ? Claim that no provider in Germany offers IPv6 at the moment and that it will take years until there is IPv6 in Germany. Ask what their(!) interest would be to offer IPv6.

Sales hotline claimed on 2016-08-06 that their VDSL service would be dual stack, so I ordered with them. After everything was running, I only had IPv4 (IPv6CP was rejected in the PPP negotiation). First call to the tech support hotline: "The box we gave you doesn't support IPv6, but pay us € 50 for a FritzBox and you'll have IPv6". On the second call, the technical support hotline did not seem to know what IPv6 was (tried to tell me my SIP login info instead, which I already had), and redirected me to the fault reporting hotline after an hour, who told me their service has no IPv6 support.

Mobile Access also no IPv6-Support yet

Germany QSC  ?  ?  ? - sometimes Tried to get IPv6 from 2007 to 2014 and failed miserably, got lots of lame excuses for years ("nobody needs this, europe has enough ipv4 addresses, [...]") ... Including the very late and somewhat broken "ipv6 test for customers", experience was very bad from my perspective: Only dhcpv6-pd, even for fixed prefixes, discussions to get a proper /48, no reverse delegation, no manual configuration and therefore no transfer net, no snmp access for cpe, backup option not available for ipv6, no bgp, no option to get a faster sdsl line than 4Mbit/s, etc ... very frustrating. Moved to MK-Netze (see above) to fix the issue and got everything I needed. SixXs ist now just a fallback for testing...

got a subnet by requesting under in sep. 14 (ADSL Product)

Germany Telekom You need to switch to an All-IP-product Existing customers with old products need to switch to an All-IP-product to get full dual stack access. New customers already get dual stack. - (They seem to ignore the IPv6 Question when asked, i didn't get any Answer via E-Mail - last information found from 2012 was IPv6 only for new Contracts with VOIP. Telekom is the Monopolist in Germany. @sge1-sixxs) There are no static addresses, the prefix is changing on every reconnect. According to support, static prefixes are only available in a bundle with static v4 addresses, that means for business users, not for home users.

If you are an existing customer and have an All-IP-product activated before September 2012 you are out of luck to get IPv6. You have to wait for a solution for existing customer, which does not seem to come anytime soon.

Germany T-Mobile Yes Mobile users should be able to dynamically obtain IPv6-Adresses

Hungary Magyar Telekom / Hungarian Telekom Was running an IPv6 test program since 2009, assigned static /56 prefixes for volunteer customers. Their test program went defunct on 25 Feb 2016, was restored at the end of March, but then went defunct again on 10 May 2016.  ? T-Systems Hungary (Telekom subsidiary) may provide IPv6 connectivity for enterprises in Dataplex data center and per custom contracts, for explicit requests. Exact details are unknown. Been using their IPv6 testbed since 2012 as a home user, it was a good-quality service. Static /56 prefix was available through DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation. My IPv6 connectivity was broken on 25 Feb 2016, but was restored at the end of March. It went down again on 10 May, 2016. IPv6 is still not supported per SLA. I had to revert to using SiXXS tunnel.
India Airtel India No timeline provided by support. Phone support had to call his supervisor as he did not know what IPv6 was. Unknown as of May 2016 Unknown as of May 2016 Given the number of IPs required by this population size you'd think ISPs here would be early adopters, sadly it's 2016 and this isn't the case. Curiously, Airtel supplied Beetel (and other) DSL modem/routers have had some support for IPv6 built in since their 2005 firmware.
Ireland Virgin Media Provides IPv6 (including 1 prefix via DHCPv6-PD) at least on their 360Mbps subscription. Supports SLAAC and DHCPv6 for DNS assignment and PD. Unknown as of April 2016 Unknown as of April 2016 Technically, IPv6 is available on the 240Mbps subscription as well but depending on the CPE delivered, it may or may not work (because the CPE itself supports IPv6 or not). It is possible to request a 2nd CPE be sent that supports IPv6.
Italy Telecom italia Testbed on any Telecom Italia connection, but only a /128 (no /64 or /48 assigned) No future assignation at this moment Available in all area's (feb 2016) The future project it's to assign a /56 for user's, but it's under planning, no notice at this moment.
