Spark used to have Sticky IPs, for about 4 years when you rebooted your router it would normally stay the same unless some grooming operation had occurred and you were moved from one BNG to another, and as a consequence of that were given a new IP Address.

 

Now the Spark IP address is fully dynamic if it's not static so when you reboot your modem you get a new IP address.

 

Stickyness tends to be implemented to make things like Copyright Section 92a / billing / provisioning simpler. But in the end tends to make things a lot more complex when you need to change around your network.

Usually this depends on the RSP config, often if you turn your router off for a large period of time you will get a new IP address.
Sticky means "It's still dynamic if you drop and reconnect the system will try and give that IP back to you, if its off for a while the chances are it will be reallocated to another user"

Personally I use a static too my IP is assigned to me and never anyone else.
