BeFibre IP Addresses

Does BeFibre use a CGNAT?

Yes. We assign a private (local) IP address to your router and then translate that to a public (real-world) IP elsewhere in our network.


What is a CGNAT?

Customer-grade Network Address Translation.

It is a network technology that uses a single public IP address for multiple users on a network. It is primarily used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to help manage network resources efficiently and is quickly becoming the industry standard.


In summary, CGNAT helps ISPs manage IPv4 address scarcity by efficiently sharing public IP addresses among multiple users.


Can I use my work VPN with my BeFibre broadband?

Yes, you can use a work VPN with your BeFibre Broadband. Some VPN's do work better with a Static IP address as the company may require a fixed IP for it to work.

If that's the case, don't worry we do provide a Static IP as an additional service for just £4 per month. Find out more about our Static IP here Static IP
