My FTTH service provider (Greencom) was bought by Cell-C some 2 years ago.

I'll be honest, I haven't queried Cell-C about whether they support
Bogons, e.t.c. However, I am quite close to the engineers there and
they've been very helpful when I've had odd requests, e.g., a static
IPv4 address so I can have a reliable 6-in-4 tunnel back to my backbone

I could ask them if you like...

As long as you don't go down the MyBroadband route, I'll supply the pen
and paper :-).
