Hi everyone,


The Skinny pricing is super sharp for UFB so I'm thinking of changing over, but I've got a technical question.


Other than the lack of ability to seed (we don't torrent), and locally host content (also not applicable), are there any other applications that would be affected by CGNAT?  I can't think of anything, but I'm a business app developer....


Thanks in advance for any responses :-D

VoIP can sometimes be tricky, but not impossible.

Any services that block or ban by IP address could impact you, a friend moved to a CGNAT ISP recently and tried to get his playstation online, however because of CGNAT we found out someone on that ip had been blocked and so it was blocked for everyone sharing that IP.

Also a good one thank you.  Pity they don't offer static IP addresses.

Voyager is same pricing as Bigpipe, but with public IP, and they do 30/10 for $69 if you need a basic option.

It's not going to stop you from seeding either
