I have found that IPv6 seems to have a much longer round trip delay than
IPv4 for just about every site that I have tried. For example, pinging
www.rfc-editor.org from here gives me this:
IPv6: rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 589.174/678.001/1109.953/117.776 ms
IPv4: rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 8.346/48.524/130.290/37.593 ms
Also, note that I cannot get an HTTP response from www.rfc-editor.org using
IPv6. The connection is established fine, but the server does not respond
This is really the first time that I have had a chance to use IPv6 outside
of a small test environment, and I am quite pleased that it works. In fact,
it is easier than IPv4 due to address autoconfiguration (no DHCP client).

It's nice to see that IPv6 is working nicely but v4 is not :-)
(DHCP servers are probably dying quite frequently..)
