Try to tell that to some polish providers. They just 'invented' a brand new
internet providing method: forget about static IP, and pay for every
transfered megabit (you've readed correctly, for every 128kb). Price is
about 1 cent/megabit (22% tax not included). Sadly, there are places where
you have no other choice :(
