Is there any way to tell if you are on a fixed IP with Telstra, without having to call them? 

I know that with Snap they put you in a "Dynamic" range, this is actually displayed DNS for my IP.

yitz: What type of connection and plan?


That's a bloody good question.. All I know is it is an old grandfathered plan... I'll have to see if I can find out more tomorrow... I was just assuming that certain IP ranges were allocated as static IP ranges with different ISP's.

If you subscribe to the Static IP service it should show on the bill. For business connections such as BizNet there is a charge of $8.88+GST.

Some connection types such as cable effectively have a fixed IP (Static IP service not required) due to how it is provisioned.

Did you say Telstra? Is this Cable?

Cable uses Static IP

If you are still on an old TestraClear cable plan, it would be worth looking at the new Vodafone cable plans, which tend to give much better data allowances at a cheaper price.
You would still have a static IP address if you changed plan (and would probably retain your existing IP address).

We switched from 60GB to unlimited data on Cable and retained our Static IP.

Okay sorry guys, must not be telstra clear, but just Clear.

We have the very old ADSL connection. Unsure on the details of it at this stage - I believe it's an old business connection... been pretty swamped today, so fell out of the priority list.

I suspect it's just a very sticky DHCP address, as it's only a testing/backup line.
