IP address bounces around and Hulu doesn’t work for local stations

We just got 5G home internet and it was fine for the first few weeks but then we suddenly started getting error messages on our Hulu account that our zip code doesn’t match our IP address location. I’ve learned that our IP address can bounce around the country. The problem is Hulu needs a static IP address so we get our local stations. Is there any solution that anyone has come up with to fix this other than dropping Hulu.

Residential service does not provide a static IP address. I doubt the problem is needing a static IP address. If you need a static IP address, you need to have business service which costs double or triple of what you are currently paying.
