Err... If there is only one FW in between the world, and all
customers, then I would not, for any price, accept ISP provided
firewall as an indication of *security* -- any of the other
customers may whack my machine(s)..
(Me paranoid ? Who wants to know?)

Such FW is out there only to enforce ISP's policies, like
"no HTTP servers at customer machines", or some such..

If they are for customer network security, they will be listed
separately in the service price listings. (With a hefty price,
but then you propably have "lots of" addresses ( >> 1 ), too..)
