Welcome to Vodafone Community
@sycar2005 We'll be more than happy to help 🙂
I'm sorry that you've had such a hard time getting your Static IP set up and apologise for the delay.
So our Broadband team can access your account and get this resolved for you, I've popped you a private message over with details on how to get in touch.
So basically one of reasons I decided to leave vodafone (within my 30 days) was static IP.. of lack of it, even when requested at point of first order. Just to put things into perspective:
My new ISP took over today.. I logged into online account, clicked static IP and been asked to reboot router.
That's it - sorted, just like that..
It only took me 3 weeks of phone calls, emails and forum complains with Vodafone.. with no resolution..
On my last day yesterday IP address was still on dynamic...
You need some serious changes Vodafone!
So it took 30 days to the day and a lot of chasing, but credit to the social media team, they managed to get a static IP applied to my account in the end! It's a shame it took as long as it did, but I appreciate the help!
Thats not default message but it wont really help you.. sorry O_o
From my experience you need to leave and then you would get static IP from Vodafone,,
I'm not kidding , just got email and text this morning from Vodafone: (Please note I'm with new ISP since 12th Apr..)
Order reference: SBL-10000002xxxxxxxxx

Technically static IP details are missing but yay at least I got email.. lol
Funny you say that. I had 2 fibre broadbands with Vodafone. I've just cancelled one under the 30 day rule as the customer service was so shockingly poor, and moved to Zen, who are excellent.
I'm looking a static IP for my one remaining line.
My God I cannot wait to see the back of Vodafone once and for all. In my 20 years in telecoms, I have honestly NEVER EVER dealt with such an omnishambles of a company.
I called up customer services and was told Vodafone used to provide static IP addresses, but have stopped in the 'last few months'. The CS rep could not provide a specific reason though.
I'm sorry @Sh500, it seems like the adviser may have been a little confused. This was something we stopped for a while, but we do offer static IP addresses.
So we can take a look into this for you, please contact us via the link in the private message I sent you on 18 april and we'll be happy to help.
Ordered Home Broadband 76 today and i have been told over phone that Vodafone do offer a Static IP free of charge (unlike SKY which tried to rip me of at the end of contract, implying that free feature is not free anymore). At beginning woman did not had a clue what am I talking about. After short explanation how it works, she did put me on hold and returned to me 2min later saying that all i need to do is to change setup in router. But seeing this thread just gave me goosebumps. I run NAS at home static IP is essential for me. Price for a plan at Vodafone is great. let's see will I have troubles with IP too
