I run various hobby servers (web, mail etc) at home, and have recently moved to NYC. Can anyone recommend a good ISP that serves Manhattan (specifically the UWS), and offers the following features:

- Static IP
- No blocked ports
- >= 768k upload
- >= 5meg download

Your only option would be Speak Easy DSL. Others like Verizon offer static ips at the speed you want, but only to business clients, and their TOS prohibits running servers for home users. Cable internet is most definitely out of the question, especially in Manhattan where Time Warner would likely cut you off or cap you the first time they see your upload data go up or catch you hosting a server.

You can also try Covad. And TimeWarner does offer Static IPs. But again not sure for personal or business.
