Broardband - Static and Dynamic IP addresses

  Martin7 14:08 10 Apr 2004

I am thinking of going to broardband but am a little comfused by the Static and Dynamic IP addresses. At present I use a dial up modem to Freeserve and have my emails via them. I am thinking of going to Bulldog but they charge extra for a static IP address. What I don't understand is if I have a dynamic IP address what would my email address be as my understanding is it can change each time you connect to them. Any help, comments, or opinions gratefully recieved.

You're e-mail address will be the same whatever your IP address.

P.S. if you are currently on dial-up you presently have a dynamic IP address.

If you change ISP make sure you can get your mail from freeserve after some ISP let you some charge.I dont think a static ip addy matters that much anyway.
