Hands down, http://sixxs.net is one of the best tunnel brokers around.
I have a 100ms ping to the next hop, and a full /48 of ipv6 space for
free. Not to mention, if you can justify why you would need more
subnets, they are happy to give them to you.

This is a 6to4 tunnel though, and I use an openbsd box and the gateway..

Just my 2 cents.
