i have a pay monthly data account with 02. The sim i have is inserted into a d-link wireless router for my internet access. the problem i have is that the public ip associated to the data sim is Dynamic (ie it keeps changing) does anyone know if 02 provide data sims with static ips ( i know vodafone do but i had to dump them because of there lousy customer service) have tried getting the answer from the on-line guru's and i might as well of been talking to a wall as they are not technically qualified from my experience this morning.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for participating and sharing your thoughts with us @bwly!
We do appreciate your opinion and we will make sure that your awesome feedback reaches O2
Maybe someone from the community could help you with your d-link wireless router configuration if you give us more information about your router

I know that this thread is probably colder than deep space but I thought I'd update it for anyone else who might be asking the same question.
The short answer is: no, O2 (and to the best of my knowledge all the other mobile network operators in the world) don't offer individual consumers the ability to attach static and/or public IP addresses to their mobile SIM cards.
However, O2 Business do offer services to business customers that can deliver static IP and/or public IP addresses, both directly (private APN) and indirectly via partners (like Asavie or Wireless Logic).
All these services use a private APN (Access Point Name), rather than one of the run-of-the-mill public Internet ones (mobile.o2.co.uk / idata.o2.co.uk / modem.o2.co.uk etc).
Private APNs also offer lots of other features like better application performance, less filtering/blocking, better security, dedicated service & customised reporting and billing.
Maybe when (if?) full IPv6 deployment happens this situation will change but I can't see that happening for many years to come.

Some networks even share IP addresses between users - I had this with a Smarty SIM in a WiFi router and i wanted to enable port forwarding to access a Node MCU which was connected to my WiFi - I found out that my Public IP address was in the 10.0.0.0 range - which is local network - so it was on my local network 192 IP address then another 'local' network with the 10 ip address on the carrier side which then shared a 'normal' IP address between several users - long story short - port forwarding didn't work.
