how do i purchase a IP address?

i need a static public IP address for private use, not business. 

i have looked around the BT site and can only find ip addresses available for business use. 

is this a service that bt can supply?

thanks

dave

You can not get a static IP address with residential BT you would need to become a business user and pay business user prices.

No, they are only available for business customers. You can of course use a DDNS service, and that usually works very well.

BT don't provide static addresses for domestic residential use. You can't even pay extra to get one. The only BT service which provides that are BT business broadband connections.

Alternatively move to Plusnet who provide a static IP address for a one-off charge of £5.
