The IPv6 Day: Bye 6Bone. Hi, IPv6 !

Tue Jun 6 17:14:36 CEST 2006

Not necessarily true always.

I've much better connectivity to many IPv6 sites than with IPv4. Example
IETF 151 ms with IPv6, 124 with IPv6.

This is always relative. Of course, it depends on how both ends are
connected, and this will improve with the time.

For "peer to peer" many times I have better connectivity with end-to-end
IPv6 (6to4, Teredo), instead of using some intermediate servers with IPv4
(assuming the usual situation where you are behind a NAT).

Even if that's not the case, I will usually prefer a slightly slower path if
it allows me end-to-end.
