I just really wanted a Static IP so that I don't get caught out when the connection drops to reissue a new IP.
And that BT only provide Static IP's with their business connections, sadly their business connections have a gap in speeds between 80Mbps and the 10Gbps Leased Line, so there is no 330 product for business connections.
You could always switch to another provider. Examples:
Cerberus FTTP Pro will give you 330/50 and up to 8 static IPs. £62.50/month +VAT = £75.00/month.
Zen Unlimited Full Fibre 4 will also give you 330/50 with a static IP. £64.16/month +VAT = £76.99/month.
Strangely, Zen's business packages seem to go up to 300/20 only. You could query it with them. However if you're happy with a "home" service with static IP, it's not a problem.
Also check https://www.thinkbroadband.com/packages/fttp-broadband in case there are any more.
Thanks for doing the checks.
I did look around when we became out of contract back in December, but they all were a lot more than what we are paying now and the price difference was too much to pay for just a Static IP.
Also adding another set of people into the loop makes things harder to get things resolved if there is an issue, where as being with BT you only have them to deal with and they have been rather quick as late.
TBH its a shame that you cannot just pay £5 to £8 per month for one, but its not the end of the world.
I will just keep making sure to close all files once I am finished with them for now.
Its a shame I cannot have BT reissue the IP every first day of each month, that would make things easier lol
Well we are in contract with BT for the next 18 Months, so I will look into this again then.
