I'm with MyRepublic (have been for several years) and am considering moving off VDSL to 300/100 Fibre now that is available.

 

 

I'm curious which ISP's currently offer public IP's (preferrable static).

 

 

I want to avoid any providers that only offer CG-NAT (like Skinny) so I can continue to host a club website at home.

 

 

Is anyone aware of a comparison site that includes a filter for this? Glimp and www.broadbandcompare.co.nz don't, so not much use for any geek! :-)

 

 

Alternaltively, does anyone have any recommendations for current ISP offerings?

 

 

Cheers,

 

Mark

From reading many similar threads here on Geekzone, it seems the two best providers for what you're after are Voyager and 2degrees. I personally use and recommend Voyager, but lots here will recommend 2degrees too.

Skinny states that their fixed-line stuff is all public IPs:

 

https://www.broadbandunlimited.nz/support-centre/about-skinny-unlimited-broadband/does-skinny-unlimited-offer-static-or-public-ips

 

We don’t offer static IP addresses on Skinny Unlimited Broadband. All IP addresses on our connections are public, dynamic addresses.

2degrees is good, but you only get a public / static IP if you pay $10 a month.

Yeah, it's a one-off cost with Voyager which is great. Although I think 2degrees broadband might still work out to be cheaper for those with 2degrees phones, not sure. Voyager costs me $99 p/m for unlimited gigabit, and that includes static IPv4 and IPv6.

Slingshot IPs are public, and very sticky. I've had the same IP for over 2 years, :)

Skinny does not use CG-NAT at all.

 

So, if you want a Public IP then Voyager (one-off cost of $15 for a Static IP) will be my pick if you're self-hosting. Else Skinny, Spark, Orcon, Slingshot (or any Vocus ISP) will suit you fine too. I don't recommend MyRepublic to anyone.

You don't need to be with a specific ISP for wifi calling to work (either 2D or Vodafone). It's independent of ISP.

The two best options seem to be Voyager and 2degrees.

Do they both provide IPv6 as well?

Trustpower also provides a public IP address for free, you just need to ask for it. They do IPV6 also.

Unless something has changed recently, Voyager will give you an IPv6 subnet if you ask for it.

Voyager provide a static /56 IPv6 along with a IPv4 for a once off cost of $15.
