You pay your provider per traffic volume or bandwidth. Not per IP 
address. At least non I know of. They will give you as much addresses 
you need. Now if you still want to put the globally unique addresses 
behind a NAT, you are free to. But it's a bad idea. The addresses given 
to you from your provider are not private.
