Few, if any, ISPs provide static IP addresses with their lower cost service contracts. It's quite standard that static IP address(es) are available only with business service. However, you are welcome to call the other ISPs serving your area to see if they have cheaper rates.

NO - to have a public IP that is static will need to be provided by the ISP

there is a service that can help with this - But I cant find - its something like http://dyn.com/dns/
