Do you offer a static IP? I really need a static IP..!

Do I really need a static IP address?

A static IP address (that is, a public IPv4 address that is permanently assigned to you, and doesn’t change) is often really necessary if you’re running sophisicated set-ups such as site-to-site VPNs or outgoing email servers. For many homes and small businesses, however, a static IP address is often not actually necessary - and only adds additional cost to your service.

This is particularly the case if you’re using port-forwarding from your router to access devices ‘inside’ your network, such as a media server or security camera system.

So what can I do instead?

One option is AmpliFi Teleport, a feature available in the AmpliFi range of routers we sell in our shop: https://www.pentanet.com.au/shop/
