Just FYI:
I registered with SixXS, had to send a lot of information plus a 
justification as to why I needed IPv6. I didn't find the process easy.
Then I requested a  Tunnel via SixXS and got a /64.... not happy.
Then I found out tat I have to request an additional full subnet (a 
/48), which I couldn't get because I have insufficient ISK (Credit)....
Conclusion: Compared to AARNet it sucks.

Seriously... SixXS is a PITA compared to the AARNet broker.
