Hello, What is the reason SixXS doesn't support BGP and ASes to announce their own prefixes ? For South America where there is a single POP this would make a significant difference specially for ISPs. Some of them may have two transit providers but only one provides Native IPv6. An alternative would be to set a tunnel to SixXS announcing its own prefixes being able to keep connectivity in the case of loss of connection to the native transit provider. The only alternative to that now is using HE.net which does supports BGP but the nearest POP is Miami and imposes a significant latency. Thanks FF

What is the reason SixXS doesn't support BGP and ASes to announce their own prefixes ?Because the ISPs who provide the PoPs do not provide that service. Also, because peering over tunnels is a bad idea, especially as it is 2014 already. The 6bone experiment was concluded in 2006. Check our FAQ: Where can I get native IPv6 transit? where to get native IPv6 connectivity.
