DSL Add ons?

Hey there does start have DSL add ons like TekSavvy?

I'm really thinking about getting 25/10 or 50/10 I haven't made up my mind yet. I'm currently on TSI cable but I really want to get 10 upload and cable wont be getting that for who knows how long without paying 100$ a month for 150/10 lol.

Any ways back on topic, does start have add ons for extra IPs like TekSavvy? if you do and have the same option as tsi as it says on their you can get:

30 2 IP Addresses $5.00 / month
29 6 IP Addresses $10.00 / month
28 14 IP Addresses $20.00 / month

By the way I'm guessing when it says 30 2 IP Addresses it means two will have complete ranges?

30 probably denotes the subnet (/30), and 2 means it will provide 2 IP addresses. Makes sense, IIRC, /30 gives 4 IP addresses, but 1 is used for the gateway and 1 is for broadcast.

Same thing for the other /29 and /28 subnets.

We don't typically do subnets on residential accounts without a particular reason (ie don't have a rate chart for it), but static IP's, yes. If you PM me I can set it up, $5/mo.

Well the thing is that I would like to be able to change my IP not have the same IP all the time. Like with cable I can simply change it in a few seconds. I've never used DSL before so I'm not sure on the process of changing IP's. I know I could use a VPN but rather not use one if I had the choice.

Thanks for the replies guys.

you get a different IP every time you connect/disconnect from your PPPoE with DSL which is quite a bit easier to do compared to cable if that's what you actually want.

Yeah sounds great. I just now need to figure out if I can get the modem up to my room. Anyone know what kind of wire VDSL phone line uses?

VDSL uses standard cat 3, however you can use cat 5, 5e or 6. As for getting the cable to where you need it you can use the cold air return, that's what I do for all my cables at home.

What kind of line comes into the house and then into the modem?

I hope you realize changing your IP does nothing. ISP's log everything so they know which IP"s you have so if they are ever required to give that info it will all add up to you and your ever changing IP's. Heck it may look worse for you because you change IPs so often that they will suspect you are doing something you shouldn't be.

To change your IP on DSL just reboot your modem and you will get a new IP address unless you have a static IP set by the ISP.

Is it still $10 for biz?

Thanks,
