I've been told at the place I work that BT Connect are apparently offering\nthem FTTC for the same price as their ADSL apart from a nominal setup fee,\nbut in the past whenever they've promised us something would be the same\nprice or cheaper it has always ended up more expensive, so I wondered if\nanyone knows if they are definitely doing ADSL to FTTC changeovers for no\nincreased cost? There's currently have a good 16 meg connection so there\nwouldn't be any benefit to FTTC apart from increased upload speed which\nwould be useful for remote working.\n\nAt the moment we use an old Netgear DG834 with a whole bunch of\nfirewall and forwarding rules, with FTTC this would need changing to a\ncable router I believe, I wonder if there is one which would have the same\nor better firewall/forwarding rule capabilities as the Netgear which would\noffer a painless transition? (Maybe allow the Netgear setting file to be\nimported?)\n\nFinally does anyone know if BT change your IP address if you switch to\nFTTC? At present we are paying them £5/month for a static IP address (a\nbit of a ripoff I know!) but I know static addresses sometimes get changed\nif the underlying infrastructure is changed, and we have a mailserver on\nour network so would need to plan ahead for any change.
