[Tampa] Static Residential IP addresses

Since I am nowhere near a phone, I am starting a new post for this. How much is it now for a static IP address for residential customers?

1 Static IP is $10 a Month.

5 Static IP's is $20 a Month.

Any Speed Package From Standard to Lighting.

I was told on the Phone you will need to swap out the modem to a motorola unit that has Business class Firmware inside and the Router is primary so no more Bridging your own Router to the Modem. And that there are NO Closed Ports so you can run Email, Web, Game, VPN Servers. But remember it's only available in Hillsborough County so far.

Cheers

BD I'm not going to argue with you about it here. I'm sorry if the information you were given was incorrect or there was a misunderstanding of the discussion on your part. It doesn't change the fact that it is incorrect.

More importantly, I just learned that a residential user CAN get a static IP address for $10/m.

Is this valid for Lightning users in 32904 (West Melbourne)???

CFL Site 20 is the only area, it's easier for me to check by IP so open a direct forums thread and just post your IP and I'll check for you.

Are you Sure you can still Bridge the Modem with Static IPs ? I was told that I could not by the product development Group that the the router in the modem has to hand out the IPs to the devices that I want to have static. In other words I would have to manually assign which static IP for ftp for router etc in those devices and then the router in the modem uses what's called pass-though to pass the static to the correct device. I know it did not make sense to me but that's how it was explained to me by PDG.

If you can Bridge the modem Then how do the Static IPs get Assigned. The modem has 4 ports can you assign each port to have a static IP if so how would you assign the fifth IP ?

Thanks BD

The computer (or other device) is set up for which IP it is to use, you can have a static IP wireless or hard wired and any port can do any of the IP's.

I have only seen my IP change once while I've had service with Brighthouse. My IP changed when my equipment changed so how would paying for a static IP make any difference?

Truth be told if you leave your modem and router powered all the time your IP will rarely...I mean rarely change....

When BHN implements dual stack IPv4 IPv6. Will the users that pay for the $20 a month 5 static IPv4 Addresses package also get 5 static IPv6 Addresses ?

I see an unasked question. The main reason I know of to have a static IP address is to run a server. In the case of an SMTP server, in particular, it is recommended to have a reverse pointer for the domain of the server. Does BHN provide rDNS configuration for its static IP addresses?

I need to have the Ability for BHN to provide me with Reverse DNS Record's on my 5 IP addresses for my E-mail server and Web Server.

The domains I have are for Personal Use NON Commercial for me and my family's Use Only. I will not be using my IPs for any E-Commerce or Running a Small Business or any other Activity of that sort which would Require BHN Business Class Service.
