There are certain (huge) ISPs which are currently not accessible from other ISPs over IPv6. This means that users cannot reach one another if they are using these ISPs.

These networks have a disagreement over peering policy. In this case Cogent expects Google and Hurricane Electric to pay Cogent money for their IPv6 routes. Google and Hurricane Electric have stated they are happy to peer for free with Cogent, but refuse to pay Cogent money.

Cogent is keeping their customers hostage denying them IPv6 routing… no comments.
