[ALL] Static IP with Cox

I've always been curious, but not enough to call up a salesperson and ask. How much extra does Cox charge for a static IP? I know with certain DSL providers its free so I assume it's not much...

It does not cost anything because it is not offered.

Maybe on a business account.

Irish is correct, Static IPs are only offered on the commercial products.

It's $70 a month for their prefered service. Which im sure is nationwide, but check anyway and a lot of money.

Embarq offers static for $4.00 more a month. If you need static see if you can get DSL.

If you need a static IP, you probably need to have a business account.

If you just want a static IP to simplify your own personal remote access, be aware that Cox's "dynamic" IPs very rarely change as long as your gateway remains connected thru your modem.

This may vary a little by market, but in RI Cox offers two "home office" commerical packages. There is a 5/2 Mb/s & a 15/2 Mb/s. They both come with up to 5 static IPs with no additional charge -- you do have to ask for them. I forgot how much the 5 was, but the 15 with 5 static IPs is $99/month.

The last I checked, which was from Email correspondence from a Cox representative, was $79/month for the 5/2 SOHO service. Last year it was $69/month, so it has gone up a bit...more than I am willing to fork over right now (which means I really don't need it).

Apparently, Cox came out and worked on the cable system around 4PM, and around 5:30, my internet quit working on the current IP address, so I had to let the router obtain a new one, and update the hosting DNS servers.

WOW! 5/2 for $79 is a good deal for me, I should order that...
