Yes Telecom have 'fixed' IP addresses as well now.
If you are a customer from the beginning of this year you get one of those, and some other situations where an existing customer will get one as well.
TCL are not the only ones doing Fixed IP.
i have had a 'pseudo-static' ip address for years on callplus/slingshot.... it?had a long DHCP lease of 30 days or so, so it effectively never changes.
Yeah same here been with Orcon for years and not once did the IP change except for moving house and changing phone line to them so that's what 3 new IP's in 7~8 years I'm waiting for an email/letter saying I've been warned soon as I get one I'll scan it an post it here for all to see
