Re: [IA] Dedicated IP from Mediacom?

Unfortunately we do not offer static IP addresses for residential accounts.

I don't understand that after all, it is just a "number" put into the system to get you online. Charge people $15 more if you want. After all, If business and residential go over the same coax, with the same equipment and have everything the same except a higher fee and better tech response time for business customer and the static otherwise there is no difference.
(Yes I know about the SLA's for fiber etc but I presume the OP is talking about ordinary cable internet)

Is that because Mediacom doesn't want people setting up servers?

The OP could just use dyndns.org.

lhollows is probably on to something that they just don't want people getting a residential connection but setting up mail servers and such on that type of connection.

I use DNSExit.com with the IP Updater. It can updated DNS records with your dynamic IP.

On a side note, I've had the same dynamic IP for at least a year. As long as your CPE device is on all the time, you can usually keep your IP.

odd thing that, when i had DSL thru bellsouth (before att got them) i had a static ip, cost? $4/mo residential. the TOS clearly stated no servers. so if it is because of that, then its, to be blunt, a very stupid reason.

i think its so they can push business class, who usually needs static ip's? folks working from home.
