What exactly Win7/Win8 software prefer v4<->v4? I see a lot of 
BitTorrent traffic from Win7/WinXP preferring 6to4<->teredo.

Kiev, Ukraine. We have 14(fourteen!!!) ISPs in one house providing 
100mbps for $12/mo or 1000mbps for $20/mo.

And to differ from that mob, we have to do something really different. 
For example, provide a native IPv6 while other don't. So may be a 
monopoly is not so bad for a slow lazy business... :)
