In relation to Xbox Live? There are no advantages or disadvantages. In relation to the broader internet? Really, the only reason why you would need/want a static IP is if you were going to host content, even then you only really need a static IP is if you needed some kind of SSL certificate.

If you wanted to pursue a static IP, you would need to talk to your ISP sales department to discuss the relevant fees etc.
