Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Where can I get native IPv6 transit?
A transit provider is an ISP that can provide routes to destinations around the world. We classify these providers into four groups as listed in the following sections. One can easily determine the presences of these Transit providers by checking PeeringDB. ISP's that are only denoted with the International flag are present around in most countries around the world. Additionally GRH can be checked for the quality of at least the routing tables (Follow the links in the first column describing the ASN for a quick view which routes that ASN carries). Please try to adhere to MIPP where possible. One can also ask on ipv6-ops for connectivity.
In case one wants to contact one of these transits or wants to know more information, don't hesitate to contact SixXS so that we can directly direct you to the correct people to help you out with your requirements. Updates & addons can be directed to SixXS.
Follow the link behind the flag to show only the providers present in that country.
Effectively one could classify the Global and Regional Transit Providers into the old-style "Tier" system where the Global Transit Providers are "Tier 1" and the Regional Transit Providers are "Tier 2".
¹ = With "Around the world" we mean that at least a non-tunneled ISP owned transcontinental link exists between the various continents and that the ISP has presence to interconnect there. Providing transit to another organization in the same city/country does not count for that as another organization, most likely one of the above will then bring it to the other continent. The latter can be listed under regional transit providers.
