Be aware that Verizon does not currently establish separate subnets for the static IP range users, even though the address blocks they assign follow subnetting rules. (This issue appears to affect East Coast subscribers as well as at least one recent West Coast subscriber.)
Verizon's absence of subnetting can create routing problems for static customers. Specifically, other users on the same supernet may have difficulty reaching services you are offering. Possible solutions include Verizon correctly deploying their FIOS service, FIOS customers could utilize a transparent firewall, or customers can try IP translations such as 1:1 mappings.
