IP addresses

Do I get a UK IP address?
Yes. Our accounts come with one of our IP addresses from our UK range. Sites such as BBC iPlayer and other sites which check for location in this way will treat your account as a UK account.

Is my IP address Dynamic or Static?
It’s not a Dynamic IP. It may change occasionally for operational reasons but in between these, you can treat it as a Fixed or Static IP address.

Having an address that does not often change (typically referred to as a static address) can be useful if you connect to your system remotely and sometimes if a Virtual Private Network (VPN) is being used.
