What kind of IP addresses do I get with 5G?

If you assumed that anytime you connected to 5G, you were automatically assigned new 5G IP addresses, you were given incorrect information or imagined the wrong thing.

The same network backbone is used for 5G and 4G/LTE communications. The speed differential between 5G and 4G/LTE is the most significant. 5G has the potential to be far faster than 4G, with rates of up to 20 Gbps and typical speeds of 100 Mbps. The capacity of 5G is greater than that of 4G/LTE.

You’ve probably heard of new IP ranges and wondered how to obtain them. IPv6 is what you’re probably thinking about. IPv4, often known as the X.X.X.X topology, is the most common type of IP address. An IPv6 address will look something like this: 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334.

Many people have wondered, “How can I receive an IPv4 address that has never been used before?” This form of IP address was standardized in 1998, and new blocks of IPs are no longer accessible. For many years, there have been no fresh blocks available. Every IPv4 address has been used in some capacity at some place.

IP address blocks are constantly changing. IP brokering is a business that some organisations specialise in. They purchase IP blocks from individuals and resell them to others, causing the IP address to change places. For example, a block that was previously used in Texas, USA, may have been purchased by another company and is now being used in a new data centre in Wyoming, USA.

All of this information about IP addresses, including where they are located and who leases or owns them, is stored in databases.

In summary, IPv4 IP addresses will be utilised regardless of connection speed, whereas IPv6 is progressively becoming more of a standard and will eventually replace IPv4 over the next few years
