In many places, they discontinued DSL service, forced you into Uverse,
then jacked up prices. As did some other providers, in some areas.
Some people near me say they also have static IPa on other providers.
Yes, it's partly that residential IPs are (or have been, anyway)
I don't know if static IPa are now easier / cheaper for them to
provide. Used to be the opposite - static cost more.
Or, if static IPa's make it easier for all concerned to track users long
I've tried to change IPa - to see if it's possible. Didn't work. It may
be possible (read quite a bit on it), but not easy. AFAIK, not
something that will happen in a few minutes or hours.
Some say they power down modem / router / computer for days. When they
restart, have the same IPa.
Apparently, the provider reserves that address, until maybe you
discontinue service. I'm sure the company provided (required) modem
has, or gets a unique identifier when you register for the 1st time.
I'm guessing, even if you found how to delete that, then you couldn't
access their service, until you called & did the process again.
