You could but will quite happily provide you with a 6in4 tunnel and route either a /64 or /48 down it for free.

They also have setup instructions for various routers.etc that support 6in4

There are several methods of obtaining IPv6 connectivity, including global 6in4 tunnels or tunnel brokers like Hurricane Electric or SixXs that give you a whole subnet to play with. But if you just want it for your home/office PC because your ISP doesn't provide it, here's a quick way that also works for those behind routers, ie., ADSL modem, 3G Mifi/Wifi dongles:

Windows users
Sign up for a free account at, and obtain the gogoCLIENT.

Ubuntu and Debian
sudo apt-get install gogoc
sudo gogoc
The configuration file is in /etc/gogoc/gogoc.conf if you wish to use it as an authenticated user.

General Linux users
As Windows users, but download and compile the Linux source code. I do believe there's a Fedora package floating around.

After running gogoc/gogoCLIENT, you should have a tun with an IPv6 address assigned from the 2001:5c0:1000:a::/64 pool (anonymous) or 2001:5c0:1000:b::/64 (authenticated - requires account).

Then head on over to

P.S.: There is a spam control question, asking you what the most popular Internet Protocol is. The answer is: IPv4
