Telia could give you more than one address using DHCP.

A /29 waste too much of the address space to be assigned to individual
residential customers. Just think about it, most people have only one or
possibly two computers. A /29 is eigth addresses, of which two are
automatically wasted in the network number and broadcast address. Six
useful, and most people use one or two. Over 70% of the address space
would be unassigned and unavailable if /29s were assigned widespread.
