[AusNOG] The price of v6 - Re: last mile IPv6

I would rather be with Internode over TPG any day (although my partner
signed a contract with them).

When you look at the bigger picture, sure you don't get "unlimited" but you
get a nationally backed ISP with in-country support who understand the
majority of faults to an exceptional level (I know when I rang Internode and
said "I have a cisco modem" and got the response "that's no problem" I knew
I had a top notch ISP).

Try doing the same with TPG???

Sure it's unlimited but like JSL said, how many people really need unlimited

I'd rather a limit with v6 and a proper ISP, than a cheap "here it is, have
at it" product with little to no support as the off-shore centres run purely
on scripts that if you step out of the script they panic and don't know what
to do (much like if you say to a McDonalds staff  member you've had a
"****ful day" they sort of freeze as their programming doesn't cope well
with non standards.

This is a broad but incorrect illustration right?

Internode - 200G, v6 - $70
or $80 with a PSTN service.

Which is the same price as TPG "Unlimited" without v6

So 3 times more quota-ed traffic than I use and v6 and from one of
Australia's top three ISP brands for no extra cost.

What was the point you were trying to make?

(And the other two top brands are iiNet and Westnet.)

(And yes, we're working away at delivering a production v6 service for any
iiNet customer who wants it by the end of the year.)
