It is a little known secret, but if you go to Telstra business you can
switch the bigpond cable to them, and gain the benefits of unmetered, fully
uncapped ultimate (160/40), and a more static IP.

Just be prepared for weeks of outages though, as they aren't very good at
doing the switch :P

Other story short, use dyndns or some tool with a 5minute TTL ;)
