I get charged $6 for a static IP for a home internet connection (not a
business account). Although in the Netherlands xs4all will give you one
for free, so it depends.
I am wondering though, is it normal to charge around $5/month for rDNS
on that IP? I'd say a one time fee for the effort of adding the record
to the nameserver would be enough. But then maybe the consumer ISP gets
charged by their ISP for rDNS.

I guess it's ok to expect a small fee when your consumer grade internet
connection gets a static IP. Given that many large ISPs force you to get
a business account if you want a static IP, and a higher price.
