Hi I’m new here just wondering which ISP provides public IP and common ports opened ( at least 80, 443)
I went for skinny fibre but they provides me a CGNAT private IP and that was a nightmare for me.
Can I go for Vodafone or 2degrees?
Thanks in advance.

Do you want static or public IP? VodafoneNZ and 2degrees provide both and don't use CGNAT

I would be surprised if any ISP does port blocking on fixed broadband especially port 80 and 443

I asked Vodafone and they said port 80 and port 443 are not opened.
However on there homepage there is a tutorial for port forwarding. Makes me confused.

Thanks John.
Yes I know it’s for http and https.
When I was with Spark VDSL, they are opened.
I can change them to something else but at least I need some ports opened.

Basically any ISP that doesn't use CGNAT will suffice.

 

It's up to your router/firewall on what you do and don't allow in terms of ports.

 

The only port some ISP's block is 25 to stop mail relay, but they also provide opt out of that blocking

if you require opening ports, Yes CGNAT is not what you want.

I would use Spark or 2degrees over Vodafone, but that's just my personal preference

If you require a fibre landline you may want to also consider choosing an ISP that does not do voice on the router so you can easily swap the router out for one where you can forward the ports required without too much mucking around as ports 80, 443 are usually reserved for the routers web GUI.

 

 

Doesn't apply if you are getting internet only.

Shop around. Spark, Vodafone, etc are not the only game in town.

I'm with 2degrees and find them fantastic both price wise and support.

 

The Fritz!Box they provide is pretty good too for a home router.
