During World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011, several key content providers
enabled their networks to offer both IPv4 and IPv6 services.
Hundreds of organizations participated in this effort, and in the
months and weeks leading up to the event worked hard on preparing
their networks to support this event.  The event was largely
unnoticed by the general public, which is a good thing since it means
that no major problems were detected.  For the Internet, however,
there was a major change on a short timescale.  This memo discusses
measurements that the authors made from the perspective of an end
user with good IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity.  Our measurements include
the number of most popular networks providing AAAA records for their
service, as well as delay and connection failure statistics.
