It would seem that your ISP likely has a small public IP address block so they are doing exactly the same thing (NAT) that your home router is doing. The support guy is telling you the truth.

The question (again):
- How can I change my IP address (what stone did I leave unturned)?

Other than a proxy there isn't any way to change the public IP address.
