Verizon Now Offering Static IP Addresses for 4G LTE Devices

Prior to this month, Verizon only offered static IP addresses on 3G-only devices - they didn't have any available for 4G devices. For 98% of the people who use mobile broadband service, this was a non-issue as any IP address will do in most cases. For people who need to configure certain devices over their 3G or 4G connection, though, a static IP address can be a necessity. A static (non-changing) IP address is usually required when connecting a specific device over 3G or 4G, such as a remote security camera. That camera needs to have the same IP address all the time so that the remote administrators are able to access it over the internet. If the IP address were to change, nobody would be able to find that camera to access it again. Until now, Verizon users who required a static IP address had to use a 3G-only device and weren't able to take advantage of 4G speeds - now, 4G is an option even for those who need a static IP!

Verizon offers a Static IP addresses for a one-time fee of $500 (this fee is per account, not per line - if you have multiple lines of service on your Verizon account, the $500 fee will allow you to request static IP addresses on all eligible devices; you do not need to pay the fee for each line!). To add a static IP address to your Verizon account, simply call Verizon customer service at (800) 922-0204.

It is important to note that your Verizon 3G/4G USB modem or hotspot must have a particular minimum firmware version installed, or Verizon will NOT be able to add a static IP for your device! The minimum requirements are listed below:

  • Novatel USB551L - MR1 (1.41.01) or newer
  • LG VL600 - MR2 (VL600ZV7) or newer
  • Pantech UML290 - MR4 or newer
  • Samsung LC11 - MR2 (LC11.EF07) or newer
  • Novatel MiFi 4510L - MR2 (2.23 ) or newer

If you're not sure which firmware version is installed on your modem, connect to VZAccess Manager and select "diagnostics" from the "options" menu:

If you need to update the firmware, simply select "check for updates" from the "help" menu; if new firmware is available for your device, you will be prompted to update.
