Someone got a rude awakening when Hyperoptic changed their static IP address without warning after a systems upgrade, locking them out of work related websites. Unsurprisingly, complaining doesn't help much, either.

When is a Static IP (Internet Protocol) address, not a Static IP address? The answer to this question should be simple (i.e. when it changes), but a recent consumer complaint against popular broadband ISP Hyperoptic has helped to highlight how the market appears to lack a common position on how to manage them.
