Layer42.net  :  Dual-stack IPv6 and IPv4 at our cabinets in their new Mountain View (CA, USA) facility.
Works well; basically no hassle getting it going.  Having reverse DNS delegated was a breeze.

HE.net via Tunnelbroker.net :  Bridging the connectivity gaps where my home/office ISPs do not yet offer IPv6.
Very useful service.

UnitedLayer.com  :  apparently ready to provide IPv6 at our cabinets in their suite at 200 Paul (San Francisco, CA, USA) as soon as we install a suitable router.
Can't yet speak from experience as to how well it works, but their network folks certainly know their IPv6.

jump.net.uk  :  dual-stack IPv6 and IPv4 at a VPS hosted by a customer of theirs in in Telehouse North (London, England).
Works well; no hassle.
