I have connected my smartphone to internet over 4G through Airtel (ISP)
I did - "What's my IP" on google. And below is the screenshot i obtained-
I understand the public IP address is in the range 27.59.102.... because it needs to be seen and routable on the internet.
And the local address is also a public address (100.127.85....)!
Shouldn't local address be private address? (The approach used to overcome the depletion of IPv4 addresses)? As there will be millions of mobile phones and giving each of them an unique public IP address would deplete the address space very quickly. Isn't it?
Could someone help me in understanding what is happening in this scenario?
