they are worth.

I'm not complaining, but I would point out that if these free brokers
are the public face of IPv6 for many hobbyists (and much of the various
software run on/over the internet is written by volunteers, and/or given
away for free), we aren't going to get there.  The big deafening silence
from SIXXS is really unfortunate in that it does actively affect my
opinion of IPv6, my willingness to spend time implementing it, pestering
my upstream about it, or having my business give a damn about it.  Yes I
know they're volunteers, but how much does that matter?

I can't say about SIXXS but HE has been great to me.  If it wasn't for them I would be out in the cold since neither 
ATT nor Brighthouse (my 2 options at my colo) can even spell IPv6!
