Ziggo offers coax link. I did a quick research and found out that it's common in Amsterdam. So I can forget about connecting my desktop PC (which I use as a server) directly to the provider's cable.
I've got Technicolor TC7200.U router, which has integrated Ethernet-switch. Will I be able to control it? Does Ziggo provide customers with credentials to get into its administratioin console? I need to fine-tune some things, enable Wi-Fi clients whitelisting, check for firmware update etc.
And, speaking of internet-facing servers at home (I so used to it back in my previous country), to make configuration hassle-free, I need a "white" IP address (not a dynamic one). Ziggo representative told me that's impossible.
Is it common in Amsterdam? Most of providers don't sell white IPs?
For some reason I thought that Amsterdam has a world-class Internet here, and it has, but seemingly only in datacenters. At home, it's expensive, complicated and feature-less. Frustrating, but, hey!.. I'm finally in the Netherlands after all.

Behind your modem you can place your own router and your router will receive an open external IP address, so you are responsible four your own firewall.
Ziggo only has dynamic IP addresses, no static, but you can take a DynDNS to always reach your changed IP address from outside. I used this for 10 years and it worked well.
But there is Ziggo business, they have Pro, where you have 5 fixed IP adresses.
