    Static IP addresses explained

    • Answer
    • An IP address is an identifier giving you a location on the internet, and you will be assigned one each time you log on.

       

      A static IP address means that instead of getting a different IP address each time you log on to the internet you will keep the same one.

       

      This is useful if you are running a server from within your home, or if you have set up remote access from another location to your home PC. This is an optional extra and doesn't carry a general benefit for standard internet use.

       

      If you would find a static IP address useful, we can add this to your account for an additional £5.11 per month charge to your regular O2 Home Broadband bill.

       

      You can opt for this at the "sign-up" stage or after your service has gone live with us.
