There is a wikipedia article on this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_IPv6_support_by_major_transit_providers

It's not very marketing nor deep in details.  There are also a variety of other sites as well with various lists that are more focused on the edge networks such as:

http://www.sixxs.net/faq/connectivity/?faq=native

I'm not aware of a fully comprehensive list, but it may be worthwhile to ask over on the ipv6-ops list with further details about where you are located or looking at desiring service:

There's good discussion over there, and a great resource if you are looking for details on enabling IPv6.
