Hey so as I watch and hear them dig up the road outside my house for UFB and i dream of the future when i can get my UFB install done i am starting to have questions about who i should use as my ISP. My first question is are there any that provide a free static IP service? At the moment i am thinking about going with 2 degrees as there new package and speed boost prices look pretty decent but I was wondering if anyone else does free static ip.

Don't think any of the consumer level ones have static IP for free. Some of the business ones will, but you will be paying more for the plan.

 

Bigpipe do a Static for a one-off cost (so no extra per month).

Yeah sorry a one off cost provided it is not too high is fine I actually consider that quite a reasonable approach personally given there is some work involved initially but then no real ongoing work imo.

I think BigPipe does a static IP for a one off $40 set up cost. Check their FAQs.

So a new question which isp supplies the best router on their gig plans just wondering if any has a more preferable device. I don't actually need something great wifi wise as I do have my own AP but on the off chance it dies who is the best provider for supplying a good reliable fast router.

Heard of Voyager giving static IPv4 for free - don't see it on the web site though.

Voyager do a static IP for $14.95 once-off.

 

I've just got Voyager VDSL here and the service is great.  I'd love fibre (coming in 2020) but 70/30 VDSL will do in the meantime.
