Seldom...

Seldom is correct, but seldom does not equal static. Yes, most folks that are on broadband are technically using DHCP, and those that keep their router or modem powered up (who doesn't?) will seldom see their WAN IP change, but it does happen on occasion. If service is disrupted or your power goes out, it's almost a guarantee that your IP will change when it comes back up. But it's also likely that the pool of IP addresses your ISP-facing device is drawing from is relatively small; small enough to correlate to a geographical area like a zip code.

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.
