A colleague in Chicago just sent me this email (regarding our trying  
to setup an IPSEC VPN tunnel to his home office):

I haven't heard back, but I believe his line is a Cable connection.

In case those reading are in disbelief or denial, I'll repeat, that's  
$19.95/mo for one IPv4 address to a residential location in the  
downtown loop, (the heart), of Chicago.

As an end user and consumer of data services, I'm simply exasperated  
and want IPv6 to MOVE FOREWORD on American networks.
