      The problem here is that we know how Sky does its IPv6, and we know the requirements and what's needed to make it work for third party routers. I certainly have no idea how BT IPv6 is done, it may be the same method that Sky uses, then again it probably is not. Your best option is to ask on a site like overclockers, they have more BT users there than you'll find on this site.

      I believe BT have enabled all of their BNGs. Their "enablement"s that they're doing now, is upgrading their hub firmwares to an IPv6 compatible version. They're not doing targeted per-user enablement like Sky did.
      So if you've got a compatible CPE, it should just_work(tm).

      Regarding what they're doing, nuances aside, it's pretty similar to Sky. Dynamic /56 PD from stateful DHCPv6. Link-local addressing on the WAN point-to-point.

      Yes, the should just_work(tm) scenario.... we know all about that one!

      Providing of course that the manufacturer has correctly implemented their IPv6 in the first place.
