      BT Home Hub 5 with Fibre Pro

      Hi Guys

      I currently have Sky Fibre Unlimited and I use a BT Home Hub5 for my wireless router.
      How to use the BT Home Hub 5 with another ISP | Expert Reviews

      I have requested to upgrade to Fibre Unlimited Pro and I was wondering will my current settings work as I have heard that Pro uses a Static IP.
      Can anyone confirm is this is the case and if it will effect me?

      cc.

      I don't think you need to use a static IP address unless you request it. In any case, a static public IP address would make no difference to you internal network which doesn't even 'see' the external address.
