Why is this not widespread yet? Is anyone offering it?

From the top of my head:
Snap Native Dual Stack
WXC Native Dual Stack
Orcon in testing?
Inspire in testing?
Unleash?

DTS also provide a whole host of services and you can do BGP with them too if needed.

Yes there are plenty of options out there. Why do very few people use it? Probably because for 99% of internet users IPV6 is actually just jargon that is meaningless to them.

Snap provide native ipv6 dual stack over all their connections (or at least ADSL, VDSL, UFB that I've used)

I've had a look at Snap's and WXC's websites and can't find any mention of IPV6.

What address block size are they providing by default?

Snap provides me with a /48.
This is currently dynamic but in the near future they are hoping to be able to provide static v6 allocations.

So a /48 is a nice 65,536 /64s, which contain 264 addresses. It's fun to know you have 17.3 mil available addresses on your network :D

Now this is something i should know about.. but i understand the ISP is to hand out /48's to customers, so the remainder of the address is made up using the device's mac address? or a bulk part of the remainder is ment to be the mac address.

It depends how your clients are configured. Many seem to make up their own unique privacy address by default.
My v6 address looks like this: 2406:e000:XXXX:0:YYYY:YYYY:YYYY:YYYY, where X = prefix from Snap, and Y = some random combination made up by my OS.
