Xbox One strict NAT

Pathfinder

Hi there,

 

I am using the three all you can eat data on my android phone, I purchased the all you can eat data to play xbox online but my NAT is set to strict on the xbox network menu.

 

I have tried setting up different access points on the android mobile, I have tried setting up the apn for android devices.The NAT will sometimes turn to open NAT for about 3 minutes then it will instantly turn back to strict.

 

I am just wondering is there anything i can do to change this with mobile data? 

 

Maybe a public IP address or a router i could put my mobiles data through? 

 

Any help would be much appreciated ,

 

Kind regards,

Gary.

When you get a public ip address you would only be on a 3G network, Three cannot allocate public ip addresses on 4G networks yet.

Thanks for both replies ! Sorry I pressed solved by mistake lol . Yeah I can't get 4G usage in my area only 3G so would it be possible to create a public IP address using 3G? There must be a way to open this NAT . I can't get the broadband at the moment due to the length of the contract. I'm going to try and turn my laptop into a hotspot and connect the phones internet to laptop and hopefully Xbox will pick up laptop and NAT will be open
