    We've just had the awkward call. Mr Third Party Expert is going to spend three weekends looking over the cabling contractors' shoulders and making sure they're doing it right. He won't configure anything or do any actual testing, he's just coming along to gee people up.
    Needless to say, if the business want to waste that money because that's what they've always done that's their lookout. No skin off my nose!

    (He more or less admitted he had nothing to do the last few times we did these projects)

    Yep virgin media business do but Virgin Media won't as why would any consumer want a fixed IP address. I actually don't have it for my Business account as I've never actually seen the need - I don't have anything that requires me to lock down to specific IP addresses.
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

    Apart from remote debugging, I have it mainly configured for inbound rules on AWS Security Groups. Thinking about it, I'm not sure if they even take domain names or if they're restricted to IP addresses and ranges.
