      No it just means no one else grabbed it or Sky are setting a longer time for it to be held just in case your router goes back looking for an IP address again. Sky don't and probably won't do static IPs.

      One certain way of changing your IP used to be doing a Sky Test, by clicking the link on the Router Status page. I don't know if this still works.

      When the IPv6 addresses come into use, I think all ISPs will change to static IPs, for one thing it make it easier for illegal downloaders and others abusing the internet to be traced.
