2014 Aug 17. Unlike Virgin Media where ones IP address can stay static for months, BT seem to change IP addresses almost by the minute. As well as the noted above, I also found that I was on (talk), (talk) (both today) and (talk) (a few days ago). Also, I am sure that I connected to via two different routers with MAC addresses: 34:8a:ae:cd:0b:e7 and 62:7d:5e:e8:5b:8a. So the person or persons doing all these Wikipedia edits is not necessarily in my street but probably is connected to CROydon exchange.

2015 Dec 09. Today I see MAC address 34:8a:ae:cd:0b:e7 with an external address of 86:187:199:254 (talk). Goodness knows how many other IP addresses it has had since 2014! Sure enough, a few hours later the same MAC address is now (talk) 17:17, 9 December 2015 (UTC)[reply]
