Telkom has implemented a change to its Internet APN which will provide mobile customers with a more secure mobile Internet connection.

Many Telkom mobile subscribers have noticed that their IP addresses change regularly, and that they do not receive public IP addresses like they did before.

The change, one user pointed out, was that Telkom was switching to the carrier-grade NAT (CGN) address space 100.64.0.0/10.

As part of the Telkom Internet APN changes, incoming connections and hosted services were blocked by default.

MyBroadband asked Telkom about the changes, and the company confirmed it has changed its Internet APN.

“The Internet APN allows Telkom mobile customers to access the Internet, but will block all incoming connections and hosted services,” said a Telkom spokesperson. Read the full article on MyBroadband here.
