What type of IP address will I get with Belong?

When you sign up for a Belong  nbn service you’ll receive a Dynamic IP address.

What is an IP Address?

IP (Internet Protocol) addresses are used to identify hardware devices on a network. The addresses allow these devices to connect to one another and transfer data on a local network or over the internet. Your internet connection is assigned an IP address – connecting your modem/router to the internet.

There are two main types of IP addresses:

Static IP Address: Where the IP address is a ‘fixed’ value – and can be useful for things like hosting your own web server or email server.

Dynamic IP Address: Where the IP address assigned to your modem or router from Belong will periodically change from time to time. You generally won’t even notice this – it doesn’t affect most things you do like web browsing, gaming, streaming. Most services that used to require a static IP address like security cameras or smart home devices offer services that sync up with a dynamic IP address.
