Thanks I rang them up and the customer care person said I can keep my static IP when I switch. They're just finishing installing the cable tubes up the street. So now 2D will ring me up and let me know when the process can get started (in March). We're about 30-40 metres From house to little grey tube it will be coming from, worried they might charge me for having a longer than standard install. :p looking forward to fibre tho.
