Don't get confused between Bigpond Direct ADSL and Bigpond Broadband ADSL.
BPB ADSL is reasonably priced with dynamic IP. BPD ADSL is about 5 times
the cost with static IP. BPB ADSL do have a residential and a business
plan. The resi plan prohibits servers and has a 3gb cap. The busi plan
permits servers but volume charges.
You can run servers on a dynamic IP if you use one of the dynamic DNS
