Private IP address on 4G connection

Lookout
Is it possible to get a public IP on a 4G connection? I've seen older posts regarding 3G connections and some saying only some accounts can have them.

Try 3Internet for APN instead? See if that helps

Currently it's only possible on 3g connections.
Id guess it might be next year when network upgrade is complete when it might be possible to get 4g public static ip

After playing around testing things over the last few days it seems my IP was initially public but has now been changed to private as I can no longer access certain servers. I'm not especially concerned with download speeds so is there a mod that could maybe change it back?

Did you change your APN?

That appears to be working for now thanks Mick. Hopefully it's just that simple, it almost seemed to simple to work but you clearly know your stuff.
