I do a lot of free downloading from file lockers. I can hit them more often when I change my IP address between downloads.

This is an abusive use of their services that are against their terms of service and possibly the law. This is not a legitimate reason to need a static IP.

I invite you to read the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) »www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html

Those are the rules all North American providers must follow with regards to IP address assignments and management.

Your need for multiple different dynamic addresses on-demand is not justifiable.
