Most broadband connections come with a single DYNAMIC IP ADDRESS. This arrangement works very well for many users as long as they only want to RECIEVE information from the internet or send it out manually. BUT... If you want to be able to have your computer SEND data to other computers on the internet, this arrangement doesn't work so well.
Imagine for a moment that your cellphone had a DYNAMIC PHONE NUMBER. This would work fine if you just wanted to place outbound calls. It probably wouldn't be much use at all for recieving calls since nobody would know what your number is since it keeps changing all the time.
Virtually any "Server" type of application that you may wish to run will require that you have a Static IP address. Your broadband provider usually doesn't give out Static IPs since they don't want you to have the capability to run a server.
If you live outside of the United States, a U.S. static ip address will help you to use popular U.S. websites like PayPal, Netflix, Amazon and Ebay.

Why the world would be a better place if I had a FREE static IP. : After two years of volunteering as English teachers, in 2012, my husband and I formed an organization in Guatemala that builds and repairs schools afflicted by poverty with plastic bottles and inorganic trash. I am proud to say we are finishing out first school, installing "bottle bathrooms," and hiring a new teacher all because of a contest I won last year. As volunteers, we make dollars a day, which obviously can not support a school's financial needs. This is why I have chosen to pursue grants and other contests online- to help brighten the futures of other impoverished children. Unfortunately, many websites prohibit me from even looking at the information because of our Guatemalan IP address although I am a US citizen. If we were fortunate enough to win a Static IP, it would open countless opportunities to raise money in efforts to not only help reverse the detrimental impact we leave on our environment, but to ensure a safe and high quality of education for generations of young and beautiful minds.
