As a gamer, and hobby web-developer (i.e. I play with recent web languages/technologies just to see what they're all about), I would find it exceptionally useful to have a static IP address on my residential Fibre account so I could run a low-traffic server.
Unfortunately, the option I was given was absurd / insulting. Considering how much a 50 Mbit Fibre connection already costs, I thought maybe I'd be offered a $5-10/month upgrade fee to add a static IP address, but instead I was offered a more-expensive downgrade to a 25-Mbit ADSL connection, just so I could get a static IP.
In the age of Fibre and where people would like to host their own private game servers for themselves and friends, paying more for a worse connection seems silly. Not to mention that TekSavvy offers a static IP for $5/month on any residential plan...
And just to be clear, I'm not asking for additional support, or a special rep, extra bandwidth or priority, I just want a static IP, with no blocking of traffic on any ports.
