Static ip address

Level 14

I posted a question on 21/7 about static ip addresses. On 23/7, Sajal replied but didn't answer all of my question. On 23/7, I asked more questions on this but never had a reply.

I know that residential plans only have a dynamic ip address. Is there any chance that when ADSL is decommissioned in a year or two that all the ip addresses allocated to ADSL users could be allocated to residential NBN users? It might mean a redesign of address allocations between NBN and RSPs.

Hi @david64 , Welcome to community,
At this point, TPG do not have plans in offering Static IP address for residential account. Our NBN residential plan only offers Dynamic IP Address. .For Static IP Address there is only NBN Business plan.

Hi sajal.
Why can't NBN residential plans have static ip address? It was done for ADSL plans.
Is it some restriction imposed by NBNCo? Or a decision made by TPG?
I understand you have no plans now, but what about the future when there is no ADSL? What will happen to the ip addresses which are being used for ADSL?
Might be a question for engineering team.



Hi @david64 


Yes. Saj was correct with his responses.

We welcome feedback about improving our products and Static IP addressing comes up alot.


Forum moderators probably cant answer as to why NBN residential products are defaulted to dynamic, compared to static IP addressing for the legacy ADSL services or NBN business products.


We will pass your comments on to our product development officers, and we will just have to wait and see if things change once the ADSL services have completely wrapped up.
