SixXS IPv6 Tunnel Provider Is Shutting Down

yakatz writes: SixXS started providing IPv6 tunnels in 1999 to try to break the “chicken-and-egg” problem of IPv6 adoption. After 18 years, the service is shutting down. The cited reasons are: 1) growth has been stagnant 2) many ISPs offer IPv6 3) some ISPs have told customers that they don’t need to provide IPv6 connectivity because the customer can just use a tunnel from SixXS This last reason in particular made the SixXS team think they are doing more harm than good in the fight for native IPv6, so they will be shutting down on June 6.
