Hi Neil,

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees. :-(

I am going through the same process. I've had a block of sixteen IP
addresses for the past fifteen years and at one time had a half dozen
in use. My configuration has changed and while I'm still using a number
of different addresses, a single IP address is all I really need now.
Still, it's comforting to know the others are available should I need
them.

In my case, I'm changing my ISP. I'm upgrading from 25 Mbps service to
150 Mbps service while reducing my monthly cost by almost twenty five
percent. It's really a no brainer. The only catch is the single IP
address.

Should I really need an additional IP address sometime down the road, I
will deal with that issue at that time:
- I may be able to get them from my ISP at that time.
- Perhaps I could provide the service via the cloud.
- or use an external proxy server to redirect traffic to a different
port.

There are always options. Until the specific details are available all
we can do is speculate.
