Sounds like you already found what you really need: a VPN.

Did you Call Your ISP then?

Or you could chose with your money and find an ISP that properly
provides the service that you are paying for.

It is 2016. IPv6 testing and transition has been going on for too long
and too many companies that are receiving your money won't be budging as
they get away with it as long as you keep on using third party services.

One really has to wonder what kind of reliability people want when they
use a 3rd party for connectivity, while giving another lots of money
while they do not provide the service they actually want.

All SixXS users got an email about this.

There is a reason why we ask to Call Your ISP.

You did not call, did you? Yeah, not a problem we cannot solve.

Then why did you not bother to do anything about the situation in the
last decade?

Why bother now?

See above... soon.

And another one that promises things that will never happen.

Please, just do not bother.
