Does IP address change when you swicth off the router?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all

When with Orange a few years ago, the IP address changed when you switched off (and on) the router. Is it the case with PlusNet too ?

Thanks in advance.

If you're on a dynamic IP with us, then yes. The IP will change each time your connection disconnects/reconnects.

Yes, but you can buy a static IP for £5 one-off.

I think that is only on the unlimited products. I'm possibly wrong, as it doesn't mention that in the price list.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 53.4/16.8Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

That's correct, on residential accounts it's only Unlimited that allows a static IP.

If, like me, you can only get download speeds as high as 2 Mbps when downhill and with a following wind, there seems little point in paying for more than essentials.
Though I am, of course, a pensioner and therefore non compos mentis and undeserving of anything better smile

Yes, that was my initial reaction when told this by PN sales support, but on balance accepted that they gave a suitable reason that pensioners mostly tend not to download reams of stuff. We techie pensioners are in a minority but I think we both fit that profile and do not download more than 10-20 GB pm.
