Hello Matt,
I am getting bounced by gmail, perhaps because mail.ukfsn.org is no longer in 
the UK, so trying again via the list.

Thanks for the info.
I eventually managed to get information from Plusnet (owned by BT but run as 
an independent company) that they expect to provide DYNAMIC! IPv6 with no 
blocked ports, which could be converted to static if they receive a one-off 
extra 5.00 payment. Their prices including phone with old number retained 
appeared reasonable for an 18 month contract, (but re-negotiate a new contract 
after about 17 months), so I gave up on standard BT and have agreed a deal, 
although the 10 days before the switch advertised on their website will 
actually be over 14 days plus time to set up payments.
