Any ideas how I can set up a static WAN IP on a Netgear Orbi RBR50v2?

Ofcom published a note about move to IP voice services but it is pretty vague and does not really answer questions asked in this topic https://www.ofcom.org.uk/news-centre/2021/upgrading-landlines-to-digital-technology

Basically BT would need to give away configuration so we could all configure the gateways.

That will never happen, and anyway, its not just a simple gateway like normal VOIP, as others have found, if you search the Internet. BT Retail have to guarantee the origin of the calls, unlike other VOIP providers who allow spoofed numbers.

That kind of needs tho happen legally.

Do you have any links to materials either confirming BT namely has a legal obligation to prevent spoofing or that's not "just VoIP"?

That article is about battery backup for devices, nothing about configuring gateways.

Read the contents of the Act, especially 105A.

Those requirements apply to ALL operators. They also apply only within their network. The spoofing of CLI is generally done before a call enters the network of UK Public Network Operators. BT has no extra burden in this regard and in any case it would need to be done in the equipment on the network side of User Network Interfaces or other Network to Network Interfaces to be secure. This is not an excuse for BT to make their VoIP offering such that it breaks Network Neutrality rules.

It does mention a potential alternative setup (e.g. own router + gateway + UPS) - that's why I mentioned its losely related.

Because BTs Digital Voice is a totally secure connection between the Smart Hub 2, and the core phone network, it guarantees that the call originates from that customer`s equipment. In fact, its more secure that a copper landline connection which can be intercepted. Also if there is a crossed line, its not possible to be 100% sure that a call originated from that customer.
