Re: Actually faster over IPv6, by about 2.5-3x??

Hurricane Electric seems to be a fairly substantial provider in and of themselves.

My last kilometer provider is the Buffalo, NY division (or whatever) of Time-Warner.

Actually, it has occurred to me since then (in light of the recent Google Public DNS/OpenDNS announcement) that the YouTube CDN may have handed me an IPv4 address optimized for the HE PoP to which I connect, which is (I think) Ashburn, VA, not my TWC address. I agree though that it would have been an interesting set of statistics if I could have done a traceroute and a traceroute6 to determine the "goodness" of the network connectivity. Higher RTT does not necessarily indicate bandwidth across any given link, but it's a at least somewhat of an indicator.

My IPv6 link is through the HE.net Ashburn pop also.

For the trace route, I wasn't looking for RTT or latency, just what physical path it took. That would have given a clue as to whether you were coming into YouTube's CDN on Level 3, Limelight, etc.
