Why does my IP address change?

We use the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to dynamically assign IP addresses (both IPv4 and IPv6) due to the scarcity of IPv4 address caused by the rapid expansion of the internet. We also use Carrier-Grade Nat (CGNAT) for residential premises to efficiently assign our IPv4 address range.
