Re: Moving Fee

At least figure out if the charge is valid (supposed to be charged).

I just talked to someone to move our service today. I was also told that there would be a $29.95 fee added to our bill. Seems like it is standard for moves now. This is a residential account.

Just cancel the service and sign up for a new one at the new address. That way you can get their new customer deals. Stupid isn't it. I have seen a ton of people do it that way.

For most residential customers, that could work. He specified a biz account, and I would definitely not cancel and sign up again. Especially if there is services on a specific static and critical services needing to be run on that static.

New CMTS, new static(s).

Not anymore, given /30 and /29 for static IPs now, they are moved with you.

I wanted two sequencial static IPs, the only way I could get them, was to get a /29 block, because static IPs are /30. And yes, my last move, they moved my static IPs to my new CMTS.

Edit: Actually I just wanted two static IPs in the same subnet, so they would use the same gateway, direct-access wants two sequencial, that was a different project.

New CMTS, new static(s).

Kevin is correct, this is no longer true if you are assigned a static on a /29 or /30 subnet. It is portable to a new CMTS. If your subnet is around a /22 then you might want to ask about getting a /29 or /30.

Also makes node splits, when the new node is on a different CMTS, there is very little downtime.

Sweet! Better than the days where my "statics" would get re-numbered every 9 months.
