Hello All. Just a simple question here...
I currently have U-Verse here in Austin (fiber to the premise) and have a static IP block through AT&T. My question is if I upgrade, will AT&T allow static IP's with GigaPower? I can't find any information concerning this anywhere else.
This is sort of a "make or break" option for me, and I am eligible for GigaPower at my location.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks Morgan! I need to think about it, as from what I've seen the DHCP address does NOT change that often, and NAT/Forwarding rules seem(!) to work very well for me for what I need.
I assume the TOS still prohibits "public" servers on the RESI service.

If I recall correctly, you can have "public" servers, but you can't have "commercial" servers.
So you can host information for a hobby or your local recreational sports team, but you couldn't start an web hosting business. I read the restrictions in 10a as stating that you can't make your connection available for public use to access the Internet via your connection, e.g. by creating a public hotspot.
Please check the TOC and Acceptable Use Policies for yourself, though.
Links to both of these can be found here:

It works. I was able to keep my static IPs.
Thank you for confirming that the process worked.

I am glad your install went smoothly, and you were able to retain your static IPs. Welcom to GigaPower!
