Static IP Address

Hi, Is it possible to get a static IP address?

@cwn Hi there, nice to talk to you again 👋 You might have seen a few threads here around a Public IP or open APN/NAT. Is this what you are looking for in this case? 

 

Because of the nature of our mobile broadband, a static IP isn't possible. ( a fixed IP that doesn't change) Three broadband supports a dynamic IP, so you'll notice that your IP address changes from time to time.
 

Hi Deborah, Thanks for your response.  The reason for my query being that my daughter is working from home and her company has advised that they now require people to have a static IP address (a fixed IP that doesn't change).  They advised that these can be obtained from MBB providers Three & VF on request but from your reply this doesn't seem to be the case with Three.

@cwn I see where you're coming from. Three Mobile broadband never offered a static IP.  Public IPs were available on request in the past and we're working getting a number of these made available.
