Thank you for contacting us.
IPv6 has not being implemented as of yet, so using an AAAA record is not yet possible. As far as we are aware, only Asian countries such as China, Japan and Korea have stated to implement IPv6.
Should you need any further assistance, or if this does not solve your query, please let us know.

thanks for getting back to me.
So its ok for me to proceed and enter fe80::240:f4ff:fe44:7d48/64 as my AAAA record?

the Internet is IPv6 now, when are ISPs going to realise

Atleast it is ipv4, imagine the fun you would start having if they were looking at this blog from a ipv6 address.
I guarantee they would still deny it :D

I'm curious why you're trying so hard to get IPv6 out of TelstraClear. If it's so important to what you need to do, why aren't you changing to an ISP that DOES provide it for retail customers?
Or is it perhaps no-one does yet - to consumer customers paying $80 a month for broadband.....

TelstraClear have an 6to4 anycast tunnel I believe (last time I tried - try traceroute to 188.8.131.52). So you can use IPv6 after a fashion despite all the intermediate hops being IPv4: http://www.wlug.org.nz/6to4
I forget where I found out about that, I can't find any google reference to it.
Native IPv6 would be nice but there are issues from the OS through the CPE up. Still I applaud your demand since without it we'll be stuck in the no perceived need/no reason loop for until v4 runs out.

Ummm, of course sticking a link local address into the DNS as a AAAA record is a pretty silly idea...
