Voyager night fit your requirements as well.

 

 

OP says he's a heavy user and Voyager has a fair use policy which could cause him problems. I'd personally go 2degrees with the $10 per month static IP address option if a phone line is a requirement, otherwise Bigpipe with the one off static IP address fee.

 

 

I use approx 1TB a month and never had any issues regarding it from Voyager - altho, I am on VDSL.

I don't know if Slingshot do static IP, but their IP addresses are pretty sticky. I've had the same IP address for almost a year and they don't do CG-NAT.

My Orcon IPv4 address follows me too and it really peeves me off sometimes haha.
I found unplugging the ONT and Router for the night gives you a new one but it isnt like the good ol VF days when I could refresh PPP and get a new IP with almost seamless transition.

If you were moving from fibre, to fibre then yeh thats crap. If you were going from copper to fibre then I can see why it would take them a while to complete the transition.

Unsure why a landlord needing a landline would affect your choice of ISP tho?
