Another one here having issues with IPV6 since the latest update. Reactivated it yesterday afternoon and could access most sites except for GZ. Would hang on all attempts, trace routes were also dropping. Facebook was working fine which was a change from issues earlier this year. Have resorted to deactivating it again due to GZ issue.

Down for me as well on a newly issued Fritzbox 7490 (which has resolved my slow international speeds).

For what it's worth - I was initially having issues with IPv6 about a week or two ago, when they had disabled it. When they apparently had re-enabled it, my connection wasn't picking up IPv6. 

I emailed the support desk (which replied bloody quickly BTW) and I've flawless IPv6 connectivity since. 

Doesn't really help you guys - but thought I'd just post to say mine has come right, now, after the issues originally listed here.

Well that explains why wikipedia, etc wasn't loading. Guess whatever the issues were are still ongoing? 

Disabling ipv6 on my fritzbox worked a treat. Re-enabled and went back to timing out on ipv6 webpages.

I had this same issue when first switching to snap, and so did everyone i know, just disabled IPv6 and moved on.

But recently the office switched to Snap and there was no problem whatsoever, the mysterious hangs were all gone.

So I just re-enabled IPv6 at home, tried the usual culprits (Facebook/Wikipedia) and they struggled the first few times, but since then, have been perfectly responsive. So fingers crossed that this is all good now and me loading those pages the first few times just happened to coincide with a solar flare.

Just want to ask - is anyone still experiencing this issue?

Definitely keen to have IPv6 working reliably especially with the proliferation of cheap IPv6-only VPS services available at the moment.
