The method you quoted does not require an account with a tunnel provider.

There is an RFC giving provisions for global IPv4 to IPv6 routers using 
the 2002 prefix. Sprint has some 6to4 routers spread around the USA.

I'm using the 6to4 method (for several years now). The only requirement 
is that you must perform the setup on an Internet-connected router box, 
not on a workstation behind a router.

The other method that you are thinking of hands out native IPv6 addresses.
