In case of IPv6 both ISPs provide you with subnet prefixes. Which prefix you

tunnels in the final solution, for tunnels are for the transition period,
right?
You can have subnets from both active at the same time on all computers. This is because IPv6 is designed to support multiple addresses on an interface. Routers advertise themselves, so either should work, but I don't know how to make one default and not the other. One other nice thing that IPv6 has that's nice, is depreciated addresses. Suppose you change providers. Instead of just cutting off one, connecting to the other and adjusting the DNS, you could leave up the old for a while, as a depreciated and just change the DNS to the new. This way, you don't interrupt access and for a period of time, have both ISPs available.
