Does Airtel offer Static IPs for thier unlimited plans ??Though it was only for the commerical ones. The pay part is esenntially renting the static IP from someone, most likely outside the country. Last ISP i was with they were getting them from Singapore. Rs.1000/yr to have one.

a static ip can be useful for an individual to start his ftp or game server mate... it's not exactly a commercial usage!

Why would you need a static ip for private trackers? If anything it'll be less secure since ur ip is there for anyone in the swarm to see and it will be easier for sites to ban your ip if they wish to (besides other obvious drawbacks of having a static ip). The only plus point is that it's easier to set up a web-server. But then how many ppl require that and if am not mistaken, ppl here have done it even with dynamic ip's.If you're worried you won't be 'connectable' on private trackers and that you require a static ip to forward ports; then you're mistaken coz it's possible even with dynamic ip's and fairly simple at that. Been using private trackers with a dynamic ip setup for a while without any snags.
