Besides Andrew's site, there's a few others listed at the bottom this page:

Thanks for the additional explanations and for running this statistics and
explaining how you do it.
Just tossing an idea in the air: several content providers are indeed
reluctant to go direct with a AAAA for their site for the reasons below.
Therefore, it would be useful if there was a web site such yours where any
webmaster could go, register its customer name, copy & paste some code in
their HTML pages and get detailed statistics about brokenness of its own
audience after a couple of days.
In the same way as done by Andrew at http://testv6.stdio.be but with you
