Agreed. I noticed TPG are giving us an IPv6 address for the past few months now, but I'm not sure if it's static (one hopes so, but it wouldn't surprise me, sadly, if in order to protect product differentiation - i.e. the ability to charge more for static IPs) they declined such a gurantee (wicked and evil as that would be). On my list of todos is to update my IP change monitor to log Ipv6 WAN addresses. In the mean time it would be nice if TPG could confirm whether the IPv6 addresses they now DO provide, are static (as they should perforce be!). Interestingly my interest in a static IP is not to do away with NAT (which has immense value aside by isolatig the LAN through a single firewall that I can selectively let traffic through on to specific LAN devices) but because I use remote access to home services a lot and for that need to manage DDNS updates and suffer the general issues of IP pool reputability when it comes to some things (like my mail server sending emails to gmail addresses).
