I am in a city of about 45,000 people. There are 4 isp companies. I pay $70.00 per month for 12/6. It has been ultra reliable for one year. There is no limit on the amount of data I can use. At present I have just installed a video surveillance cam system. It works great. However, in order for me to be able to view the system on my Android OR from any remote internet capable sight I MUST have the ability to pass two port numbers that at present my isp does not implement or use. They had an instant flat answer of "you need a VLAN" installed at a monthly charge from $70. I pay now up to $120. To me, that sounds sky high for only needing TWO PORTS to pass through. Am I being unreasonable and is there a good reason for a VLAN? Another friend told me I simply need a Static IP address at something substantially lower than the additional $50. per month. I do NOT mind paying whatever something costs IF it is a fair price, but I hate being ripped off. Please give me backup information that I could present to the ISP owner that would either reassure me that the extra $50. per month is fair OR the reasons that I could present to him to support the fact that he might ACCIDENTALLY be charging me excessively. I am 100% open to either scenario....just need the facts. Note: The ISP I am with is hooked up via a wireless link to one their sites 1/2 mile from me.
