In fact, I think it only changes when the MAC address of my computer's network card (connected to the cable modem) changes. I upgraded my firewall PC (running Linux, natch) and it changed, but has not changed otherwise.
I have had pretty much the same experience with residential DSL, and now FiOS. The IP is not static, but the leases seem really long.
