I'm thinking of changing my ISP from one-tel to madasafish now that thay offer a broadband service. One thing that I'm unsure about is that madasafish offer a dynamic IP address rather than a static one. As a home user will I notice any difference with this and what is the difference?

Thank you

The difference is that a static ip is one that you have everytime that you log on to the net you have the same ip, dynamic changes each time.

As a home user you wont notice any difference at all.

If you're after static IP addressing then choose Zen - what a superb broadband company. You can find them if you click here. They activate your connection like lightening too. Nice to see BT rushing ADSL through at last!
