Hello, Comcast has a plan that allows home-based small businesses the option of getting a static IP address. From what I was reading most folks are paying anywhere from 15 to 60 a year to have this feature. Xfinity just quoted me 263.5 a month.

I think I am going to try the Dynamic DNS, I just think I have confused myself now. Do others have goodluck with a DDNS service?

I think the quote would be for 5 IP addresses, not 1. If it's 1, then you better get blazing speeds.

It's a quote for a block of 5. And there is no such thing as getting any statics for residential service. I know. I checked with Comcast. The only way to get static IPs is to convert your service as a business class circuit. That's why you're getting a quote for such a high monthly. When I got the break down of the charges, the static IP was only a small portion of the monthly bill. I seem to recall about $15 a month. The rest is the circuit itself. For the amount of pricing per month, you're definitely getting less speed per dollar spent on business class service. I was considering the move because I was needing multiple public IPs to support a project where I wanted to run multiple site to site VPN tunnels. I figured out a work around which didn't require multiple public IPs.

I've been running dynamic DNS for years now which for the vast majority of home/small business users is enough to get you by.
