I'm moving into a area where Telecom is doing some fast (Fiber 30Mbs/3Mbs) broadband trial, all sweet waiting to signup when I enquire about the Static IP, telecom drop me a bomshell saying I cannot have a static IP on this trial broadband!! . I'm not sure they can provide other broadband plans (PRO) with the static IP etc.
Any one living in this area (Mission Heights - Flat Bush) using a static IP please comment?

Alternative is to use DDNS but I have seen issuse with paid DDNS in the past

I use No-IP instead of DDNS.
Works great and never had a problem with it using the little app on one of the machines to keep the IP address up to date.
