ATT is pulling the fiber optic on the poles in my neighborhood in Sacramento and it is supposed to be available in a couple weeks, yet when I talk to the sales guys about getting fiber service, no static IP is available. I have static IP with my fusion service. Any chance of getting static IP over fiber?

Unfortunately due to the nature of Fiber optics we are not able to provide a static IP for now. As this demand grows and our infrastructure is fully in place in the future, we may re-evaluate this but for now we're not able to. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Kind Regards,

Dane (finally) described a few months back why static IP isn't in the cards for fiber service (for now).

Based on my study of the issue, the available workarounds are:
  • Dynamic DNS, which works for many use cases,
  • A VPN subscription with a static IP option.
