Most fibre providers give you a static public IP address anyway. Test it ... Smart home concept (or sales pitch) for buying into fibre - without a static public IP - is basically useless.

Some routers have easy to configure DDNS services also built into the firmware.

Useless in what sense? Difficult to connect to maybe (sorted with DDNS though) but it works otherwise.
Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

Nonsense, don't confuse long leases with a static address.
ISP's don't want to issue static IP's for consumers as it makes network management much more complex.
Some started out with static IP's but as they matured migrated to traditional leases.

All automation stacks use cloud services that don't care what type of connection you have, it renders any requirement for static/DDNS unnecessary.

I pay R1045pm and that includes a static IP address
May I ask who your ISP is please?
Typo - R1145pm
I use Rocketnet and that is on supersonic (ex MTN/smartvillage) fibre.
Used them for a couple of years (previously over Metrofibre) and have been happy with the service and support.
Have just moved to 200/200 for R1445pm.

We are on an uncapped 20/2 Vumatel line with Axxess @ R838 inc VAT.
Speed is mostly good. The low numbers was when we overdid the downloads and the throttle kicked in.
