The fixed IP service is genuinely fixed - the IP address is assigned to your account and you have a section in the Hitron config screens to enter that username & password.
In fixed IP mode- either single or multiple you are unable to switch to modem mode, so no the single fixed IP service is not suitable for a setup whereby that IP address needs to be on a router behind the Hitron. For that you need the routed subnet option.
I have that setup now and it's working very well.
