Re: [IPv6] IPv6 not implemented in my area yet?

said by NathanO:

I wouldn't really encourage the use of tunnels at this point, it will be soon enough that you'll have native IPv6. At this point, there is no advantage to running a tunnel unless you have some specific need for IPv6 only content.

Heartily agree with this ! Tunnels add overhead.

Not sure what kind of overhead you are referring to. Here are my results using 6to4 tunnel. Anything faster would pretty much have to break the speed of light:

Test with IPv4 DNS record
ok (0.286s) using ipv4

Test with IPv6 DNS record
ok (0.298s) using ipv6

Test with Dual Stack DNS record
ok (0.215s) using ipv4

Test for Dual Stack DNS and large packet
ok (0.143s) using ipv4

Test IPv4 without DNS
ok (0.138s) using ipv4

Test IPv6 without DNS
ok (0.141s) using ipv6

Test IPv6 large packet
ok (2.427s) using ipv6

Test if your ISP's DNS server uses IPv6
ok (0.227s) using ipv4
