Yes, I paid the one-off £5 for a static IPv4 address. Mine is capped at 40Mbps 
down, 10Mbps up, but my modem tells me that the maximum achievable down has 
varied between about 40Mbps and 90Mbps, highest when the ground is wet, now 
72.79Mbps. The cables are old, mostly installed around 1930-1940, and the 
ducts are badly damaged, so BT are reluctant to touch them.
