Seems we can get fibre in our office, my question is can we move the static IP from our main ADSL connection to our new fibre connection.

Big deal for us, as all our clients have our IP address coded into their firewalls.

No static IP's or port 25 on Telecom UFB at the moment. You have to go to VDSL if you want it.

Pretty massive flaw if you ask me!

Somewhat unrelated since this is Telecom forum, but we had our Snap VDSL switched to a 100/50 UFB and they got our UFB up on a dynamic IP, had us test it until we were happy, and then booked a time out of hours to flick our Static IP over from our VDSL to our UFB. Was amazing.

We would swap to another provider, IF it wasn't such a big nightmare to change IPs

May I ask why your system operates directly with an IP instead of a domain? Would make situations like this a lot easier to deal with :)

It's pretty hard to lock down customer firewalls to a domain!

I don't think I explained myself well enough, either that or I don't understand the setup well enough.

But what I'm saying is; if instead of placing a singular IP address in the firewall, why not place a domain such as "ip.domain.com". Then all you'd have to do is update the "A" record on the domain to forward to the IP of your office. Then, in the future, if a situation like this arose again, it would only cause limited downtime as the DNS records propagated throughout the internet, after you updated the "A" record to the new domain.

Forgive me, if this example is not possible with the firewall setup you are using, as that is not an area of my expertise.

Get fibre from another provider and run them in parallel until all your clients have updated to a new IP in their firewalls?

Correct, no static IP's on Fibre (at this stage) - you're able to transfer it over to VDSL no worries though? Could be a temporary solution until we enable this on Fibre.

Far too lazy to do that.

If I could get Fibre at home, I would do it in a heartbeat.

As I understand it, static IP on Telecom Fibre isn't that far off.

No VDSL at our place.

Can anyone give me a definite timeframe?  If it's going to be short-term, we can lump it.

It's a trap! Telecom time does not follow the workings of mere mortals. No one knows...

But in reality it's pretty soon from what I've heard

Trust me... I know all the inside scoop on this one. (Probably because I built the whole subscriber management stack)
